Bandar (in Persian ÈäÃÑ) is a Persian word meaning "port" and "haven". Etymologically it combines Persian Èäà Band (enclosed) and ÃÑ dar (gate, door) meaning "an enclosed area" (i.e. protected from the sea). This word travelled with Persian sailors across Asia. ...

In Arabic there is a word called Bandar بندر , I don't know what is it's origin but it means Seaport, coastal city, commercial center or Big city that have some villages surrounding it.

It's a Persian loanword, not Arabic. It is used locally in Egypt only (up to my knowledge).

Peace,

 

In Glasgow it's a grevious insult. As in, "You're a bendar".

Assalamu Alaikum, I know it probably means many things in different languages, but the meaning that Mujahada is looking for in her post is most probably PORT.

 

Even in Urdu and Hindi A port (Sea Port) where Ships stop and park is called a BENDAR GAAH (Sea Port).

 

InshaAllah Muja, this helps.

 

Assalamu alaikum, umAhmad.

:j: aunty UmAhmad! I still didn't ask my dad about it...

 

Oh no! This is the second arabic name I liked that means or sounds like "Monkey" in another language. I liked "Maymunah" but some turkish and bosnian people said it sounded like monkey :sl:

Lisan al Arab, probably the most comprehensive Arabic dictionary, clearly states that it is a Persian loanword meaning port or a city by the sea.

 

It also states that a bandaar is a wealthy man, also persian loanword. Maybe using it for a town in Egypt came from this.

It may have other meanings in other languages but not in Arabic.

 

Badir (that is the way it's pronnounced with a very very short and the i as in "hippo") indeed means full moon, it has nothing to do with bandar.
