This is a Muslim name used as both a personal name and a surname. It is said that when naming a child the parents express their gratitude to both God and the Prophet by using names which give hope for a long, happy and prosperous life. The Prophet during his life often urged his followers to use such names including Barakit (blessings) or Sa'adat (felicitations) or Khush (nice). In this case the name is often used when after parents have had a succession of boys, they at last have a longed for girl. In this case she may be called Masarrat meaning "joy" or Munya "wished for", or Arzu or perhaps Arman, which have the same meaning. The Muslim faith is spread over many languages and there can be different interpretations put upon the meanings of what appear to be the same names, in different regions and countries. Furthermore the adoption of what were previously personal and baptismal names as hereditary surnames in the Western style. is a fairly new phenomena, and it may be that in time new methods of research will be introduced to allow a more accurate etymology, than at present exists.
