Meaning of Ahyan

Ahyan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “moments”, “times”, “era”. It is the plural of Heen. It is derived from the H6-Y-N root which is used in many places in the Quran.

He said: ‘Descend, each of you an enemy to each other. The earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment for a time. (Quran 7:24)

Did it ever happen that the people of a town believed on seeing God’s chastisement and its believing profited them? (There is no such instance) except of the people of Yunus. When they believed We granted them reprieve from humiliating chastisement in this world, and We let them enjoy themselves for a time. (Quran 10:98)

    Assalamu Alaikkum,
    I am trying to find nice name for my new born boy. I found that the name ‘Ahyan’ sounds nice and i came to know about the meaning through your site only and some other sites providing false meaning. Ahyan means era, epoch, sometimes which is the plural of heen mentioned 6 times in quran. But is it acceptable to name my child with this name. Some of my family members claims that it does not give good meaning of charecter or something. I really like a name. please help me or advise ‘Is it acceptable to name my son as Mohammad Ahyan’?
