Salam, My son's name is Ilan which I found on another website. Then I came across this website. But is it ok that i spelt his arabic name as الان

Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

Spelling Ilan as الان changes its meaning, it is not longer the same name. الان can be considered a non-standard derivation from the name Ilana, which means "to soften", "to make gentle". So you can keep the spelling you mentioned.
