About Sheikh

Go back to names list

Sheikh is a masculine name of Arabic origin and is derived from the Arabic honorary term referring to a ‘Scholar’ or teacher. It is traditionally given to the leader of a tribe, or a person considered a wise man. Muslims use the word to refer to a man over the age of 50. All of this would suggest that it is rarely used as a first name.
