Meaning of Aidan

Aidan is an indirect Quranic name for boys and girls that means “tall palm tree”. It is derived from the Ain-D-N root (perpetuity) which is used in many places in the Quran.

God has promised the believers, both men and women, gardens through which running rivers flow, therein to abide, and goodly dwellings in gardens of perpetuity: but God’s goodly acceptance is the greatest [bliss of all] -for this, this is the triumph supreme! (Quran 9:72)

    @1: All names are acceptable for Muslim children unless they have a meaning that goes against Islam. Since Aidan doesn’t have a bad meanin, it is an acceptable name for a Muslim child.

    What is the correct meaning for Aidan? Does it mean tall Palm trees in heaven?

  8. on Sunday 24th of July 2016 08:16:50 PM

    This “عيدان” spelling you listed is pronounced AY-dān (ay rhyming with hey, dān rhyming with Khan) and shouldn’t be spelled as Aidan in English as Aidan is pronounced in English as AY-dən (ay rhyming with hey, dən sounding like the dən part of Jordan). The meaning of this Arabic spelling you’re talking about should be spelled different than Aiden in English like “Aydaan” or “Aidaan”.

    The name Aiden (pronounced AY-dən which is what most people who searched this name are looking for i.e. info about this name with THIS pronunciation) is actually a pronunciation variant of the Turkish name “Aydın” (pronounced eye-dən, meaning “enlightened”). (Go on the website Forvo if you’re still confused and want to hear how Aydın is pronounced in Turkish.)

    So the Muslim name Aiden (which is pronounced in English speaking countries as AY-dən) is related to the Turkish name “Aydın” meaning “enlightened”.

    The Muslim name Aiden is written as “ایدن” in Persian.

    Hope I helped anyone who was confused and wanted to know the correct Muslim meaning of Aiden. 🙂

    The root meaning or word of phrase where aydaan appears in the Quran is in reference to the garden of Eden, or paradise “adnin tajre min thahthihal anharu fee khalideena fee ha” and it connects with “everlasting” “eternal” and also encompasses other meanings like “enlightened”.

    It should not matter if a name is Quranic or not. Giving a child a non quranic/Islamic name does not make them any less of a Muslim than someone with a quranic/Islamic name. Like one poster said, as long as it doesn’t go against Islam, such as calling your child “Christian”, then it is ok. Chose a name you and your partner like, not a name to please “others”. Who are they to judge, only the almighty (swt) can judge us.

  12. on Sunday 20th of November 2016 09:46:23 AM

    If I spell the name Aiden? Is it still reference to garden of Eden?

    In Turkish and Azerbaijani, Aidan (or Aydan) means ‘from the moon’ , or the one from the moon. And mainly it’s a girls name.

    Aiden in muslim names is spelled as Aieden. This mean hand of God. In some places it means strength of God

  23. on Saturday 28th of March 2020 04:28:54 PM

    There is quranic verse which reads as “ Allah made this world with his strength’’
    In places the verse is written as “ Allah made this world with his hands”

    The word Aieden is used in the verse for (hand/strength)

    We have named our son Ayden. Because we wanted an international name (im dutch, my wife is from Senegal), so his name can be pronounced in almost any language. Also in celtic/irish “aiden” means “little/small fire”, and because we are muslim, we wanted a muslim like name. So “Ayden” is a nice middle between “Aydin” (enlightened) and “Aiden” (little fire).
    Also very applicable, when unborn the baby was very feisty, kicked and moved a lot, and also brought some peace in our troubled family. So “little fire” and “enlightened” are realy in place here.

    name is lame.

    Sadly people in this website trying their best to find excuses and connect to Islam. Aiden is a Christian name commonly used in Irland. To Muslim families find an Arabic name for child if you truly Muslim. God bless us all

  27. on Sunday 22nd of October 2023 02:38:09 PM

    ^Astagfirallah what’s with the blatant Arab supremacy. Having an Arabic name doesn’t make you “truly Muslim” and anyone who says that should be ashamed of themselves. As long as the name is not cruel or directly against Islam you can name your child whatever you want. If the name is commonly used in Ireland that is fine, who are you to say to white/european Muslims that their culture isn’t accepted in Islam and they must convert to a new ethnicity to be accepted by Allah. Our prophet told us to keep our culture. You’re the only sad person here, May God forgive YOU.
