"al-Dīn" style names from Ibn Baṭūṭṭa
by Basil Dragonstrike

This list collects all the so-called "titular names" of the form "____al-Dīn" and similar formations (e.g. al-Dawla instead of al-Dīn). Some of these come from nasabs, where an ancestor is referred to by his "titular name" rather than his ism.

People in the SCA should note that while this sort of name phrase used to be considered presumptuous, that is no longer true, and has not been since October 2020.
