Meaning of Keyan

Keyan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “being”, “existence”, “essence”. It is derived from the K-W-N (existence, being, was) root, which is one of the most common roots of the Arabic language, used over 800 times in the Quran:

Mankind was only one community, but then they differed, and had it not been for a prior word from your Lord, their differences would have been settled for them. (Quran 10:19)

We said “O fire, be cool and safe for Ibrahim.” (Quran 21:69)

Additionally, Keyan (also pronounced Kayaan) is an ancient Farsi name that means powerful king, unrelated to the Quranic word.

    Sir, I am a muslim and my name is Keyan. Why wouldnt you be allowed to name your son Keyan? Its an indirect Quraniq name, you should feel proud about naming your son this powerful name.

    Our son is born in january 2015. We give him the name Keyan. We live in europe, my husband is muslim. We think Keyan is a modern name with a nice meaning “powerful king”. Most people around us never heard the name before but i think they like the name!
