"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:
"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:
