  • "my middle name, but I'd go by that before my first name (Deonte) and in the unofficial language of Jamal's everywhere it means strong, hansome, bright person LOVE THAT NAME!!!" Sep. 20, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Jamal is Arabic and means handsome and kind. (Where the meaning "camel" came from I've never seen before today.) It is a great name. Rarely mispronounced and well liked by many people. My son loves his name and is well accepted amongst his peers." Dec. 17, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is very often pronounced incorrectly as "Juh-mel" or "Jay-mall", especially in the South. The correct pronounciation of my name is "juh-MALL". I don't allow anyone to get away with a mispronuniation of my name, so I've become accustomed to correcting any that would dare. The name has many meanings: "kind", "beauty", "the handsome one", "camel", and others. Originally, as a child, I remember disliking my name because it seemed uncommon, but as I grew into young-adulthood, this hardly-uncommon name has truly grown on me, as I suppose all fine names eventually do. Thanks, Dad." Aug. 5, 2006: Report as inappropriate
