What's a Rabah?

So where did "Rabah" come from? I portrayed a 16th Century Ottoman Turk named Mu'allim Rabah az-Zafar, OP in the SCA . As I understand it, "Rabah az-Zafar" loosely translates to "Gain the Victory". "Mu'allim" is a title that denotes my inclusion into the Order of the Pelican, the society-wide Peerage that is given for high level service to the society.
