Meaning of Afif
Afif is an indirect Quranic name for boys that means “chaste”, “virtuous”, “modest”, “righteous”. It is derived from the AIN-F-F root which is used in a number of places in the Quran.
Alms are for the poor who are restricted in the way of Allah, disabled from going about in the land. The unknowing takes them for the affluent because of their modesty. (Quran 2:273)

My name is Farhan but my family calls me “Afif”. To be honest, I used to dislike this nickname when I was little but now, I wanna use it all the time, especially after realizing that it means “chaste”!
