  • "My name is Fatima and i absaloutly hated it. In fact i was bullied in elementry school about it so much. But when i got into middle school everything changed. People complimented my name saying how beautiful and unique it was. And when someone accidently mispronounces it i just laugh it out and correct it for them" Nov. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Fatima (Fa-Te-Ma) I was named after my beloved late grandmother... I used to hate my name... but now I love it so much Fatima means 'The Strong Woman' and it reminds me of all the things I want to live up to, as a strong woman =) My nicknames include: Tia, Toumi, Fattoom, Tima, and TamTam" Oct. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "It is a beautiful name, and anyone who thinks it adds to the growing "obesity" rate, is crazy. How can a mean nickname have anything to do with that?? Use your common sense. If you are ALREADY fat, try to stay healthy, and don't mind the mean names. I mean have you such low self-esteem that a nickname bothers you that much?? Good grief." Feb. 17, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "It's my name, and the best name. Ever. I've never really had fat jokes b/c I'm thin, but I do go by "Fatty" or "Fat" or other such variations. This is no surprise b/c most names get nicknames anyway. Well, at least I give people nicknames anyway. It's a beautiful name and means "captivating" as well as "stopping to wean/abstain.""

  • "My nakevis fatima but i spell it F-A-H-T-I-M-A and i love it. Yeah i get the fat jokes but im five foot even and 96 lbs. I guess if you are actually fat it would bother you but Fatima is beautiful name and I love" Feb. 8, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "my daughter's name is fatimatou from fatima.in west africa we have different ways of prunouncing .i name her fatimatou to honnor my mother .for me that's the most beautiful women name.honnorable name." Jul. 2, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Fatima, and when I was younger I really didn't like my name...mainly because no one else I knew had it, but also because the only references I ever saw to it were religious. Now that I'm older, I love my name (which by the way does not mean daughter of the Prophet :P that's a person, not a meaning, and it is not derived from the Latin word for Faith.It's usually translated to mean "weaned/ one who is weaned/ to abstain/ one who abstains".) Thankfully, I never got any of the "Fat" jokes :)" May. 19, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Actually the root of the name is Latin and its derived from the Latin for Faith "Fatim". The meaning isn't actually daughter of a prophet (i.e. before he was considered a prophet why would his daughter have that name?) It's also the name of a beautiful city in Portugal, and I know a couple of Portuguese who have relatives named Fatima (though its not the islamic version, more so the euro). Yeah the name is easy to tease but as i was always very petite it didn't bother me that much :P" Dec. 19, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm Mexican, so the name is not as popular there as in The States, which is cool because it makes it sort of exotic. In Mexico people never spell it wrong, but when I travel to English-speaking places some people have difficulty pronouncing it...instead of pronouncing the first syllable stronger (which is the correct way) they pronounce stronger the second. In Spanish it's very easy because there's an "accent" on it, but in English these symbols don't exist so it gets annoying sometimes, hehe....but apart from that I think it's a very beautiful name and I would never change it for any other. I think it has character and yet a particular sweetness..." Feb. 6, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My names Fatima pronounced Fateema, didnt like my name growing up (thought it was a sad polynesian name) but one day when i was about 11 a teacher asked me if I was muslim. I thought this was strange as I am a Polynesian girl born and raised in New Zealand as a christian. As ignorant as I was about my name, only told that it was a catholic name. I finally found out that there are many places and religions in the world that uses this name. I think its awesome that I have the same name as someone say in India, Africa, Mexico or Spain makes it exotic and not boring!!!

Farida as well old and means 'unique'. the n ame fatma gives impression of originality and class. also of tenderness and uniquness and femininity. the only down side here is that it may be considered old but stylish at the same time!!"
