Origin: Arabic

Meaning: distinction or privilege

Yesterday was my mother’s birthday so I decided to profile her name 🙂 Most (if not all) of the sites I’ve gone to spell it as Imtiyaz and list it as a male name. More like unisex. Mumtaz is a related name and has quite the history with its most famous bearer being Mumtaz Mahal, whose husband built the Taj Mahal for her.

Variants: Imtiyaz, Imtiaz
