Congratulations on your baby and may Allah make him a source of blessings for you and your family.

Farhan means "happy" and it is derived from the root al-Farah (happiness) which is mentioned in various places in the Quran, such as 30:4 and 3:170, therefore it is a Quranic word, and since it has a good meaning inshAllah you can use it for your son.
