Last name origin & meaning:
Muslim: from Arabic Ayyūb, the Arabic form of the Hebrew
(Biblical) name Īyōb ‘Job’. In the suras he is regarded
as a messenger of Allah. This name is borne by Christians (in Lebanon
and elsewhere) as well as by Muslims. The spread of the name among
Muslims is partly due to the fame of ̣Salạ̄h ad-Dīn Yūsuf
ibn Ayyūb (Saladin), founder of the Ayyubid dynasty.
