Jump to: navigation, search

Anwar is the English transliteration of two Arabic names commonly used in the Muslim world: the male given name ʼAnwar (أنور), meaning "luminous" or the female given name ʼAnwār (أنوار), meaning "a collection of lights". Both names may also be encountered as surnames, sometimes also with the accompanying "al" (the definit article "the") as in Al Anwar.

In Francophone countries, both names are usually transliterated as Anouar and Al Anouar with the definit article "al". The name is transliterated in Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Turkey as Enver.
