"Mounir" proper Arabic male first name


Explanation:
Most arabic names have meanings.
"Mounir" means: shining, radiant, bright, luminous.
To confirm that it is a male first name, it fits with the middle name of "Jean", French for "John".
Maybe this person is the product of a French-Arabic union, therefore his name!
