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 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.

    Arhan is actually Orhan, Written in Urdu same. It is Turkish name as Orhan ghazi (City in west Turkey) etc.
    Its origin is from “khan”, which means the Leader, Ruler or the King as well (Mongols, Changez Khan etc). Khan when converted to Turkish language it becomes “Han” with no changes in meanings. According to Turkish Language when a word contains “Ar” before it starts makes it superior, makes its meanings supreme. in this way the “Han” with “Ar” before it becomes “Arhan” which means the leader of leaders or king of kings.

    Arhaan is a Sanskrit name from India. It comes from the word Arha which means Lord Shiva. Since Sanskrit is from Indo-European family and was the ancient language of Aryans who were from Persia ( now Iran) hence it must be found in Iran as well.
