Meaning of Adyan

Adyan is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that is most common in South Asia. Adyan means “religions”, “creeds”, it is the plural of deen (religion). It is derived from the D-Y-N root which is used in many places in the Quran.

and Abraham enjoined his sons to do the same, as did Jacob, ‘My sons, God has chosen this religion for you; so do not let death overtake you, except when you are in a state of submission.’ (Quran 2:132)

    Is it good to keep Adyan name to boy.? Because “Ad” means son of nuh he didn’t accept the Islam.. so I want to know that it permissible to keep name?

    We were requested to change our sons name as Islamic scholars/Imams told us that Adyan doesnt have a good meaning as it means “Religions” which means you accepting other religions and other gods. In Islam we follow just one and thats Allah.
