I want to know what is the meaning of the name of 'Mirza' and is it ok for Sunni Muslims to keep such names or is it better for Sunnis not to keep names like Mirza?

what about the name Baig and what does Baig mean also?

I have a friend whose surname is Mirza and I think he's a sunni, but should I go and ask him or should I not go ask him as to whether which sect he follows and what mosques he goes to.

The reason I am concerned about names like Mirza or Baig is because it reminds me of the guy who was called or had a name called Mirza Ghulam Qadiani or something.  I hope I have not offended any one and my intentions are not to offend any one.

Assalam as far as my knowledge goes on the following names the meaning is:-

Baig means
Honorific title, Noble, Lord, Prince
Mirza means
Turkish title for Lord, Prince; always a middle name of the Mughals

I hope somebody else could assist in regards to your other questions 


I had no knowledge of bowing (Ruku). What did I know about prostration? Was I in search of your footprints or was I prostrating in prayer..Strange is my life and my servitude

Wherever I found your footprints I made it my direction

i dont no the meaning to the name mirza but to ask whether you can keep it or not is rather silly. at the end of the day its just a name. there where many great men with the name mirza before that khinzeer came on the scene. also think about it. will you also apply that to the names ahmed and ghulaam. NO. but what i can tell you is that it is haraam to keep the name PERVAIS which unfortunatly many pakistanis keep. he was the shaitaan that ripped the letter of rasoolullah (saw). the name feroz is also haraam as he was the majusi who killed hazrat umar (ra)

Mirza or Baig refers to Mughals or decendents of Mughals/Moguls, basically a tribe/khandan in Pakistan like Rajput, Jatt, Rai etc.

or fron the net:

a member of the Muslim dynasty that ruled India until 1857

  1. also Mo·ghul (m-gl, m-) or Mu·ghal (m-gl)
  2. A member of the force that under Baber conquered India in 1526.
  3. A member of the Muslim dynasty founded by Baber that ruled India until 1857.
  4. A Mongol or Mongolian.

In a nutshell,

it's a Family Name, not a First Name.
