well, first i don't support such "traditions" which make ppl different or superior than others, and the MRF have made these restrictions of these titles only recently. so, yes they like to keep with traditions but only for themselves bcz they want only them be called that way. i think ppl can ask for a lot of "unnecessary" things, which somehow may think make them "superior humans". i also read somewhere these titles restrictions are because the MRF are "descendants" of prophet mohammed. if so, does "lalla" has any arabic origin or ever used before in arab gulf regions?

i'm really curious about ppl who says they are "descendants" of prophet mohammed, based on what they said or written in old books. we can believe it and that's all. but since it's not written in a sacred book, then we can believe or not. in our days there are scientific studies about the migratory history of the humans by using laboratory and computer analysis of DNA contributed by ppl. do you have any idea if anyone who says he/she is "descendant" of prophet mohammed, have contributed to such studies?

i can comment on the law you mention Zineb i am not law expert,i know that 'lalla' and 'sidi' still used and alot in street when ppl to each other and no law can stop that i am sur.
as for name Amira and Amir i think you are not accurate here as my 10 month nephew name is Amir
about the DNA analysis who claim to be descendant of prophet mohammed is very good idea,i totally support it.

yes, mademoiselle lilo, in street ppl use this "sidi" and "lalla". but the point is see how the law is making the distinction "officially". as for the name amira and mira (not amir), i'm sure i saw them somewhere in the list of the forbidden names. not sure for the name amir (i didn't say it's forbidden). i would like to see again this complete list if someone have it. i think they are available at birth certificate' offices and moroccan consulates abroad.

yes, IF amir is allowed, amira should be.
i believe you that your nephew is named amir. but i'm not sure that amir and amira are allowed names.

titles by inheritance aren't important. to me, the most important is who we are, what we achieve and what we feel about ourselves and our family

Hello - could someone please tell me why Lalla Salma is only a Princess, when her husband is King? Why is she not a queen?

Thanks :-)

Lalla Salma is the first king's wife to get the title of princess and have public role its huge step for the ruling family in Morocco,the king say once in an interview that in Islam there is no queen at least in Morocco (alot disagree with him).i honestely think this just the first step for a huge change in the MRF and in futur sure there will be the title of queen.

I think creating her Queen would have been 1 step to far to soon.

I think you are right Mademoiselle Lilo. Lalla Salma is a great princess with all of her works. I hope she can become a Queen one day. I think it will depend on the King.

I doubt that the royal family will ever give a title Queen.
personally, I think only those born royals should get the title King/Queen, those who marrry into the family should get the title prince/Princess even if their other half becomes King/Queen.


Do we know how long this visit is for? and I hope that we do get a picture or two of Salma with Sheikha Mozah.

Thanks...

Mademoiselle Lilo - thanks for your response. Lalla Salma is an educated as well as active first lady. Her work will make her worthy of the title "Queen".

Are you saying in the past the wife of the ruler never received any title?

Why? thats bias in my opinon.Its like there no way for a woman to be Queen at all! If she the oldest of the king's children then her rightto the throne are taken the moment she is born and if she marries into the family she gets the wonderful title of "princess" making her equal rank of her daughters and sisiters-in-law. i am just saying.

She is married to the king so she outranks the other women regardless of titles. I hope eventually - assuming there will still be any monarchies - that the regent is King or Queen and the spouse is titled Prince or Princess.

Lalla is never used in the gulf or other Arab countries and its meaning is unknown. Id guess it has Berber roots but im not sure.


DNA projects on a large scale are being done. You can find more details on this here :
