    you're absolutely right, I agree with you that there are some pure Algerian names without meaning:
    Tasa3ditt, Khaddoudja, Dja3far, Houari..
    But I meant that most of the first names have meanings.
    Tell me what are your two first names and I would reveal their meanings

    If we don't know some Algerian names meaning, we don't have the right to say "they are without meaning" , because every name has a meaning

    "Tasa3ditt" = the Berber form of "Sa3dia" just like "Qbaylia"(Ar)==>"Taqbaylit"(Berber) & Sa3dia or Saadia comes from "Sa3d" or Saad which means "Happiness" so Sa3dia= Happy, Glad... The foster-mother and wetnurse of Muhammad (pbuh) Halima was best known as Halima Saadia

    "Khaddoudja" "Khaddoudj" or even "Khedawedj"= Diminutive of "Khadidja" (Arabic : Fa3ila becomes "Fa33oula" or "Fa33oul" or" Fewa3el" lol) (like Aicha=> Aouicha, Aouaouech, Aichouch...etc) Khadidja means "born in the seventh month ( premature baby)" , Muhammad (pbuh) wife and the first person who converted to Islam & believed the prophet is Khadidja bint Khouiled....

    Dja3afar!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Probably you don't know Ja’far ibn Abi Talib also known as Ja’far al-Tayyar, who was a companion of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and an older brother of Ali. (He's Muhammad (pbuh) cousin, I think that you know "Ali Ibn Talib" !! Ja'far is his brother!! one of the most marvellous men in Islam...)
    About it's meaning, Ja'far = the prolific river

    "Houari" comes from "Houara", Houara (Arabic: هوارة‎) is a Berber tribe spread widely in the North Africa , Ibn Khaldoon wrote a lot about it...so Houari is SIMPLY a person from Houara, I think that's not you're real name as you don't know till now its meaning

    But I've understood what you meant...
    Yours, are bad exemples, because they all don't have bad meanings ,,,I think that you would choose " Faroudja, Akli, Ma7roug Erras, Meskhouta, Behloul" ...etc Those,...oh my God!! Why parents gave their children such names!!!

    Houari is likely a misunderstanding of an Amazigh word "Wehera" meaning of the lion, that was transliterated into arabic as "Houara" which in arabic I believe means "more than fair." Its use today as mentioned is thought to come from Houari Boumediene, however he took this name from one Sidi Al-Houari the Patron saint of Oran and his last name from Sidi Boumediene the Saint of Tlemcen. Both of these saints were revered in the region Houari Boumediene commanded during the Revolution.

    Zidane is not arabic but, Amazigh for "pleasent, nice."

    Zidane does not come from the Arabic "Zid" to add or the adjective suffix -ane as this would render a translation into English of "Additional/additive" which is the adjective of "to add."
    This would not make sense as a family last name as they generally refer to regions/tribes, former family professions, or family nicknames (I.e. "Mcgregor" [tribe], "Fisher" [family profession], Caesars' killer "Brutus" [family nickname]. Therefore, the family name "additive" sounds implausibly silly.

    However Zidane is a well attested word in the region the famous soccer player is from , Kabylie, where in the local dialect of Thamazigth (a pre-arabic language) it means "pleasent, nice." I recently encountered a Moroccan store owner who informed me the term was the same in the Thamazighth speaking regions in Morocco.

    For this "Amazigh" or "Maghrebi" name to be found in Egypt is unsurprising as their has been much population flow from the Maghreb to Egypt beginning in the pre-dynastic era of Egypt. Similarly other Amazigh names pop up in Egypt and the Levant such as "Al-Zenati" refering to a past tribal confederation in Mediterranean Northwest Africa.

    In summation the name Zidane is not arabic but of the closely related Amazigh language Thamazighth, in which Zidane means pleasent, nice.
    For more on Algeria's Amazigh roots see the Mazighen (plural) page on wikipedia

    I guess he's from the west of algeria, right houari?
    When you go to Oran(Wahran) most of the names are Hourai or Hoouaria. Muah.

    In arabic to form an adjective you can add "..ane" to some verbs such as:
    Rahama is a verb, Rahmane is the adjective.
    Kassala is a verb, Kasslane is the adjective.

    so : Zada (means add) is the verb, "Zaydane" or "Zidane" is the adjective (meaning adding).

    Which implies that "Zidane" means "adding"

    His first name is" Zineddine" which means in arabic: "the beauty of the religion".

    Hope it helps

    P.S A lot of Algerian last names have no meaning just like the western ones , but all the first names have a clear meaning.
    Sahit Houari,

    I have two first names and they mean nothing Etthala Khaliss.

    I dont think its typical Algerian. There is an Egyptian soccer player named Zidan (same word). It has a meaning which i dont know at the moment.
