Meaning of Adan

Adan is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “one who happily resides somewhere for eternity.” It is related to the word Eden in English. It is derived from the AIN-D-N root which is used in many places in the Quran.

[theirs will be the] gardens of perpetual bliss which the Most Gracious has promised unto His servants, in a realm which is beyond the reach of human perception: [and,] verily, His promise is ever sure of fulfilment! (Quran 19:61)
