    Dear Brothers n Sisters, Alyan means supreme, exalted or high, is it permesible to use such names which is usually used only for Allah subhana watala.
    i feel this has to be understood better or the meaning should be studied more carefully.
    i am looking for a name for my child, could be a boy or a girl not known.

    I think to name Abdul Alyan (slave of the one who is most high /supreme) would make more sense.
    & ALLAH knows best..

    If we spell as Aaliyaan instead of Alyan, will the meaning remain same as Alyan, because people may call my baby Alean.

    Salam,

    I am from Pakistan. Can we pronounce Alean as ”Aaliyaan”? We want to name our baby boy as Muhammad Aaaliyan Shandaar.

    Jazak Allah.
