Meaning of Zidan

Zidan or Zaydan (which are one and the same name) is a Quranic name for boys that means increase, growth and progress. It is a synonym of Zaid, also a Quranic name. Zidan is not directly mentioned in the Quran but its root is Z-Y-D which is used a lot in the Quran.

Grammtically, Zaydan is the standard name, and it is the muthanna (two count plural) of Zaid, i.e. it means “two Zaids“, twice as much increase and growth as Zaid. The Zidan pronunciation is more commonly used among people, though it is not standard. There are no issues with using either pronunciation.
