  1. Arabic-origin names are particularly common among African Americans due to the intersection of the Civil Rights movement and Islam during the 1960s. Common examples include Aaliyah, Aisha, Jamal and Kareem.

    Salma and Shakira are both also from Arabic. Salma Hayek and Shakira both descend from the large Lebanese diaspora in Latin America.
