Meaning of Ayan

Ayan is a Quranic name for both boys and girls and means time, era, epoch, age. It is mentioned in many places in the Quran:

They ask: “At what time is the Day of Judgment?” {Surat adh-Dhariyat 51:12}

Ayan could also refer to the Arabic word `ayyaan, which refers to someone who has wide eyes, or one who is perceptive in studying and analyzing things.

Ayan, if pronounced [(A)fter] + [(YA)r(N)], is a Persian name that means “long night”, “inspiration”. This is a good meaning therefore it is acceptable for Muslims to use this name with the Persian meaning.

    Ayan and Ubair were to water bowls of prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him, he was drinking water in those bowls, narrated from some hadith

    Either you could take the name Ayyan starting with hamzah which would mean time, era, etc, or you can take the name ‘ayyaan starting with an ‘ain and that would mean one who has wide eyes, or one who is perceptive in studying and analyzing things. Hope this helps!
