This name generator will send you 15 random Moorish names. During the Middle Ages the Moors were people of different regions of Northern Africa and parts of Southern Europe. Their descent came from North African Arabs and Berbers, and they were Muslims as such. Although the word Moors was once used by one group of people, it later changed to a derogatory term by other groups of people. This generator refers to the original Moors community in the Middle Ages. Because the Moors were Muslims, their names are still recognised, but they are different from the Muslim names you now find. In some cases it's because of dialect variations, in other cases simply because the names are very old. 'ibn' and 'bint' signify respectively 'son of' and 'daughter of' in the surnames.

The word Moorish can be used interchangeably with Moroccan and Spanish. Just like Neapolitan tried to hide the Mooric features, so too did Moroccan attempt to hide the true Moorish history. This was basically the origination of some of the most offensive, racist and offensive names for the country. These people would use names that were derived from Islamic terminology that was not readily available to them but in a very short time these people were able to borrow words and concepts from this source and make them their own.
Many modern day Moorish people will claim that they are not a descendent of this group. However, the truth is that many of these people were influenced by the original Moorish settlers and their culture. Some of these people who claim to be not Moorish are actually descendants of these settlers. These people would adopt names that were originally used by the original settlers. They would then add their own personal twists and take them a step further. This has led to the birth of some of the most offensive names.
Don't mind the name, I'm not judging it; I'm just telling you how it's been made into a slur. A slur which has made its way through history and the written word. The name has been taken, borrowed and adapted to fit a variety of situations. You're probably as disgusted with the name as I am, and that's a good thing because it's what brought all this out in the first place. We need to call it what it is and get rid of it forever. Let me know your thoughts.
