Is correct spellings for the name ,are Eemaan / Emaan. Some people write as Iman which I think is not correct as in Arabic it is pronounced as Ee = Eemaan / Emaan and not as Im = Imran. Awaiting your ,With Best Regards

Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

You can choose to spell this name in any of the ways you mentioned. Since this is an Arabic word, it has no official spelling in English. Spelling it with an "I" is not wrong because it would be like the spelling of Iran, both of which start with the same long "ee" sound.
