  • "I enjoy my name Hamza because nobody ever has this name. I have only come across less than 10 people with this name in the United States. The majority of the time I met people with this name were at local Islamic Masjids. Through school teachers/students pronounced it either "HAM-za" (which I was quick to correct due to its affiliation with pork), and "HAUM-ZA" (which I did not mind so much). The true pronounciation is "Humm-ZAH". This was the name of the Holy Prophet Muhammad's (May Peace Be Upon Him) Uncle. He was known as the "Lion of God". The famous Hollywood movie of the 1970's entitled 'The Message' will assure you the name is actually very famous. Hamza is also a letter in the Arabic alphabet."

  • "My name is Hamza. This name is of Arabic origin. It is a popular name for Muslims of many nationalities because Hamza was a great person in Islamic history. Hamza was an uncle of the Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him and his family). Hamza was a great warrior and defender of the Muslims. The name Hamza is very easy to say. It is pronounced just as it is spelled. Poeple often mispronounce it however by reversing the order of the "m" and "z". I frequently hear people mistakenly say "Hazma" instead of Hamza."

  • "hamza is a beautiful name. What adds beauty to the name is the fact that anything associated with prophet Muhammad pbuh is blessed by default. Moreover, in Arabic definition, the Hamza character represent a phanominal symbol which has a very strong core principle of Islamic belief and understanding, where everything starts from a point ... Raises itself to certain peak ... Prostrates to that which is nothing but The Truth on it's way back until it reaches it core and then thereafter walks on what is reffered to as "sirat-e-mustakeem"."
