Named after her brother Rashid, who died in September 2015 from a sudden heart attack, Sheikha Latifa shed light on the inspiration behind the name with a poem to her brother saying: "After I lost the sight of my brother, I decided to name him after him, so his dearness may live and Rashid bin Mohammed might return to life. Tell my brother that even if death came between us that the soul still beats with his name and he is not forgotten. Even if fate and destiny may not return my brother, his name can come back to life."
