Rashid (spelled also Rachid) is the transliteration of two male given names; (Arabic: راشد ‎‎, Rāshid) and (Arabic: رشيد‎‎, Rashīd).

The latter name has a diacritic, in the strict transliteration, on the "I", which emphasises the long "I" sound in that name's pronunciation.

Ar-Rashid is one of the 99 Names of Allah meaning The Guide.
