I would to name my son a name from the quran, but truly am in love with the name Arhaan and wondering if it is in the quran or islamic origin? please help....
This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff
Arhaan is not an Arabic name or from an Islamic origin. Some sites say it comes from "Indian" (maybe Hindi or Sanskrit) origins and it means ruler, king, but I cannot say if this is correct.
Arhaan is the name of a place in Iran.
You can use Arhaan as a name and by it you can mean "a place in Iran", or the Hindi/Sanskrit meaning of "ruler, king" if this meaning is correct.
