 Automatic Romanizer of Arabic Names (ARAN)
Developed by a team of experts on Arabic orthography and phonology at The CJK Dictionary Institute, ARAN is a versatile system that performs a full range of computational linguistic tasks required for processing Arabic names.
Arabic is written mostly in unvocalized script, which is why it is so difficult to transcribe and is the raison d'être for the ARAN system.
If a name is not found in our Database of Arabic Name Variants, variants are generated in various romanization systems by linguistically advanced algorithms using a sophsticated knowledge base that captures the rules of Arabic orthography.

 Hebrew name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
With the rise of Islam and the establishment of an Arab Caliphate, the Arabic language became the lingua franca of the Middle East and North Africa.
Finally, some names were not translated or adapted at all, but were harvested from names that had already existed in the English language since the Middle Ages, including quintessentially English names such as John, Mary and James, which today bear little resemblance to their original Hebrew forms.
While considerable scientific controversy exists concerning the origins of these names, LDS assert that many of them are ultimately of varying Hebrew, Egyptian and Arabic origin, along with some of asserted "Jaredite" origin, and most of the names do appear to have a great deal of Hebrew anatomy.

 Arabic name - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Often, one name may be transliterated in several different ways (Abdul Rahman, Abdoul Rahman, Abdur Rahman, Abd al-Rahman, or Abd ar-Rahman), as there is no single accepted system.
But by the rules of Iranian and most Indian languages this name means "the Muhammad who belongs to Allah", which is acceptable; the Arabic equivalent is "Muhammad Ullah".
The general rule is to follow the transliterated spelling adopted by the individual in question, if it exists, or else to follow one of the available systems.

 'Isa -- the true name of Jesus?
The historically correct answer can only be that it is the name that he was given at his "naming ceremony" (Luke 2:21), the name by which he was called by his mother, his foster-father, his siblings and other relatives, his neighbors, his friends and his disciples during his life on earth.
His name was not arbitrarily chosen by his parents, but he received his name based on God's direct command (Matthew 1:21, Luke 1:31) because the meaning of this name expresses the purpose for which he was born (Matthew 1:21).
Deedat’s interpretation of this name as "Esau" tends to lend support to the suggestion made by some that the Jews in Arabic cunningly misled Muhammad by subtly perverting the true name of Jesus into the name of their forefather’s irreligious brother.

 NSDL Metadata Record -- Arabic name authority in the online environment : options and implications
Arabic name authority records have been handwritten using Arabic script and filed manually in book or card catalogs since the time that it was considered important to preserve this information.
After the adoption of typewriters as tools in library cataloging departments, those who only had Latin script typewriters were forced into using transliteration schemes, a practice that has been criticized for compromising uniformity and accessibility.(Houissa) Later, typewriters fitted with Arabic character keys allowed authority cards to be typed in Arabic.
There were also attempts to encode both Latin and Arabic scripts on cards?or in book catalogs, as the first dual-script name authorities; something that was encouraged by the catalog cards distributed between 1902 and 1997 by the Library of Congress.
