Introduction

Introduction

  • What is considered a “classical” name?

    Rule 22.22 Names in the Arabic alphabet

    “Apply this rule only to names (regardless of their origin) originally written in the Arabic alphabet that do not contain a surname or a name performing the function of a surname. In case of doubt, assume that a name of a person active in the twentieth century includes a surname (see 22.5) and that other names do not.”

    “If the entry element is not the given name (ism) or a patronymic derived from the name of the father (a name usually following the given name and compounded with ibn), include these names unless they are not customarily used in the name by which the person is known. Include an additional name, descriptive epithet, or term of honour that is treated as part of the name if it aids in identifying the individual. Generally omit other elements of the name, particularly patronymics derived from anyone other than the father.”
