We named our son ‘Yazdan’ and the websites showed its an arabic name meaning kind, merciful. However, some of the people are of the opinion that it means god. I tried to do some research but couldn’t really find the origin of this name in arabic. My son is 3 years old and I don’t want to change the name but at the same time I am worried that this name may be inappropriate. Please help.

    Yazdan (or Yazdaan) meant “God” in Persian language (not in Arabic language). It is not a name of God, it just meant “God”. However, Persian-speaking Muslims usually do not use this word for God, they prefer words Allah (Arabic word meaning God) or Khoda (Persian word meaning Supreme Ruler / God), because they wanted to differentiate themselve from Zoroastrians. So the word Yazdan was an universal word for God in pre-Islamic Persia, but nowadays it used in reference to God mostly by Persian Zoroastrians (for them Ahura Mazda is Yazdan= God). So Yazdan was Persian word for God in ancient times, and it means God in Zoroastrian dialect of Persian language even today.
