Meaning of a Name: "Alfusainey" / "Aflusainou"

can anyone tell me if the name “alfusainey / Alfusainou” has a specific meaning?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


I’m not sure by any means, but I’d guess that “Alfusainey” and related forms are West African versions of what we might render as “Alpha Hussein” (with “Hussein” being Arabic originally).

Does that help?


Coleman is right in saying this “Alfusainey” and its variants originate from Arabic.

In Arabic, it is « الحُسين » (Al Hussain) meaning the little good one.
It is the diminutive form of « الحَسَن » the good one.
