Meaning of Ruhan

Ruhan (spelled روحان in Arabic) is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “spiritual” (i.e. related to the spirit), “kindhearted”, “compassionate”. It is derived from the R-W-H6 (spirit, happiness) root which is used in many places in the Quran.

[God gave another example in the story of] Mary, ‘Imran’s daughter, who preserved her chastity and We breathed Our spirit into her; she testified to the words of her Lord and His Scriptures, and was truly devout. (Quran 66:12)

Now if one happens to be of those who are drawn close unto God, then happiness and delight and Gardens of Bliss are his. (Quran 56:88-89)

Ruhan (spelled as روهان in Persian) is a Persian name that means “one who has a life of doing good deeds.” This meaning is not from Islamic sources, but since it is good, it can be used as well.
