Kader Name Meaning

Muslim: from a personal name based on Arabic qadir ‘powerful’ or qadir ‘able’, ‘capable’. Both Al-Qadir ‘the All-Powerful’ and Al-Qadir ‘the Capable’ are attributes of Allah. Qadir is found in combinations such as ?Abd-ul-Qadir ‘servant of the All-Powerful’ or Nur-ul-Qadir ‘light of the All-Powerful’. ?Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani (1077–1166) was one of the most celebrated Sufis in Islam. Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic): occupational name from Hebrew qador ‘potter’. Czech (Kader): nickname for someone with curly hair, from kader ‘curl’, now a rather old-fashioned term. Compare Kudrna. German: perhaps from the Germanic personal name Cado.
