I'm currently working on a piece of fiction, which will have a muslim woman born in Afghanistan as a main character. I'm just having some trouble with the name. Do people from Afghanistan have Arabic names? No websites have anything called afghanian names, so I assumed that was as close as I got.
How do the "rules" of Arabic names work? I've seen names with "al-" and things like that in front of the surname, are those titles? Do they have any meaning nowadays, or are they something that had bigger importance in the past?
I hope someone can help. A little guide to the translation would help, too, once I decide what the name is. :)
