Anas, ihtesham, ilan,ahyan, rawdan/roudan, Shiham, shayan, subhan, shabaz, taseen, yazdan, tahmeed, let me know if these are authentic Islamic names,do they occur in Quran and is it good to name our child?


This is an official answer by Staff

For Anas see: Anas

For Ihtesham, Ilan and Ahyan see: Ihtesham Ilaan Raahil Rashid Ahyan

Roudan, pronounced (ROO)m + (DONE), is the Farsi name for the plant known as Rubia in English that's used for creating natural red coloring. This is the only Arabic/Farsi word I know of that is similar to what you mentioned. It is not a Quranic name but since the meaning is good Muslims can use it.

For Shiham, Shabaz, Taseen and Wildan see: Ahyan,Shiham,shabaz,taseen,wildan? How authentic and Islamic are the names

Shayan, pronounced (SH)ape + sm(A)rt + (YA)r(N), is a Farsi and Kurdish name for girls and boys that means deserving, worthy, beautiful, lovable.

Yazdan is one of the names of Allah, exalted and high, that's used in Western Asian cultures originating from ancient Persian. Today it is used to refer to Allah in Farsi and Kurdish and possibly other nearby cultures. It shouldn't be used as a name since it is a synonym of Allah, it would be like naming someone "Allah", which is against Islam. You can use Khadem Yazdan (servant of Allah) and Bandeh Yazdan (slave of Allah) as names for boys and girls.

For Tahmeed see: Tahmeed
