What does WAEL mean?

Wa'el (Arabic: وائل‎), also spelt Wael or Wail, is an ancient Aramaic male given name. The first found usage of the name was found and translated off of ancient inscriptions from a site called Sumatar Harbesi. The inscription explains a King of Edessa, the 'Parthian Wael' during roughly 160AD. The names' usage is pre-Islamic, though it is a common misconception to depict it as Muslim in origin due to the names use in the Quran. The name's meaning origin is unknown, however, there are a few different definitions depending on how an ancient text was translated. These known meanings are "clan", "seeking shelter", and "protector". Pronunciation differs based on the varieties of Arabic.
