Kaba Name Meaning

Muslim: from a personal name based on Arabic ka?b ‘fame’, ‘glory’. This was the name of the ancestors of two different tribes in Mecca, Ka?b bin Rabiah and Ka?b bin Kilab. The ka?ba is an Islamic sacred shrine in Mecca, and the personal name may also have been chosen with reference to this. Muslim: possibly also from a personal name based on Arabic ka’ba ‘sorrow’. Japanese: ‘birch tree’. The name is not common in Japan. Czech (Kába): from the personal name Kába, a derivative of the Biblical name Gabriel. Hungarian: from kaba ‘falcon’, from Serbian and Croatian koba, kobac ‘sparrowhawk’, hence a nickname for someone thought to resemble a falcon, or a metonymic occupational name for a falconer. Alternatively, it may be a nickname for a slow-witted person, from kába ‘slow’, ‘lethargic’. It could also be a habitational name from places so called in Szabolcs county in northern Hungary and in former K{u’’}lso Szolnok county, now in Romania.
