Assalam Aleykum, can you tell me please what is the meaning of the boy’s name “Azlan”? How do we write it and if it’s a good name or not? Thank you

Edit by QuranicNames.com Staff: Azlan is a variant of the Turkish name Aslan, which means “lion”. They are both acceptable names. Azlan is pronounced [(U)p + (Z)ero] + [(LAN)d] with emphasis on the second syllable. (Friday, August 8, 2014)

    W/salam, i do not know the meaning of this name, but i’d like to raise a few concerns regarding this name. Azlan is the name of the “lion messiah” from the Narnia chronicles, which is a popular children’s book/film in the west.

    The name Azlan is a boy’s name of Turkish origins meaning “Lion”, ergo the “messiah lion” from the popular Narnia Chronicles being named this.

    If you are not living in the west or do not wish to raise your children in the west (most specifically the UK region) then i recommend you name your child Azlan if that is what you wish to name him. But i must warn you in the UK we are required to read the Narnia Chronicles as part of our studies at one point and children might find it funny to see a child also named this.

    If you are still determined to name your child “Azlan”, i think it is best you stick to that particular spelling rather than “Aslan” which is how the “messiah lion” from the popular Narnia Chronicles name is spelt as. So avoid the spelling “Aslan” and stick with “Azlan”.

    It is pushto name that means “LION”and spelled AZLAN. I named my son Azlan Gul and I’m very happy with my decision. I do live in USA, and this consider very unique and decent name.

    We named our son azlan qays…
    In one boom I read meaning of azlan as ” a person with good family background ”
    And qays means lover
    Azlan – inspired from chronicles of Narnia
    Qays- inspired from a classic… Laila majnu
