Meaning of Shahraan

Shahraan is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “moon-like”, famous, and the period of two lunar months. It is derived from the Sh-H-R root (fame, moon, month) which is used in many places in the Quran.

And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] is thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says, “My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favor which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims.” (Quran 46:15)

Shahraan is also the name of a pre-Islamic Arab ancestor and to him belongs the Shahraan tribe, one of the largest Arab tribes. There are many Companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him and his companions, who come from this tribe.

Shahraan is also the name of a Persian nobleman who lived at the time of Yazdegerd III (the last Sasanian Emperor, before the Persian Empire was conquered by the Muslims) under the command of Mahuy Suri, the governor of Merv in modern day Turkmenistan, as is mentioned in the Shahnameh of Firdousi.

    Can anyone tell me “Shahraan” name is appropriate for the Muslims baby, as above the meaning mentioned is “the period of two lunar months”. What does it exactly means? Is it OK that we can keep our baby name.
