Farah or Farrah is an Arabic feminine and occasionally masculine given name.

Meaning[edit]

It has two origins, Middle Eastern and English.[1] The Middle Eastern name and its variants (Farrah, Ferrah, Fareeha, etc.) are based on the Arabic root ف ر ح (f-r-ḥ), which is the basis of words related to joy (e.g., فَرَح , faraḥ, "happiness, joy, gladness, gleefulness, joyful, joyfulness, merriment, rejoice"). Its English root derives from Farrer, a middle English term from Middlesex meaning ironworker, itself derived from French Ferreor.
