Meaning & History

Most likely from Arabic بن (bin) meaning "son" and the given name Nouna, which may have been derived from an Arabic word meaning "whale, big fish" or "sabre, sword". Alternately, it may be from an Arabic name for a variety of melon. This is the name of a Moroccan family of Jewish origin that converted to Islam.
