    May you tell me the base origin of the name please? It kind of matches with my daughter Aisha and I am thinking of putting it as my son’s name.
    Many thanks.

    My name is Aisha and my husband’s name is Alamzeb so we had selected Ashaz name for our son it’s meaning is patient and obedient to parents, its name of one of sahabi from prophet mohammad (saws) era.

    We actually searched a lot and decided to call my little son as ahnaf, the meaning posted in this website was, a person who is close to god, reads hadith, honesty etc but now if u show some other meaning for ahnaf, it is really disappointing, we started calling him ahnaf when he was in the womb, how shall we change his name. Ur error has really made us feel confused and disgusting.

    The meaning has been previously mentioned differently, so what should we do who kept our son’s name “Ahnaf”? cause the meaning is quite negative now?
