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. In Francophone countries, both names are usually transliterated as Anouar. The name is transliterated in Albania, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Turkey as Enver.
