More info about the name "Abu"

Abu is an Arabic name and can mean either "father" or "master". Although it is used as a name by itself, sometimes it is used as a “kunya” where the bearer takes on the name of his firstborn along with his. So if a person's first born son is named Hakim, the bearer can become “Abu Hakim” meaning “the father of Hakim”.
