Answer

This is an official answer by QuranicNames.com Staff

The correct meaning of Ahyan is the one mentioned on our site here: Ahyan

 The meaning of "gift from God" is incorrect and comes from a list on the SearchTruth site that contains many incorrect meanings, and many other Islamic baby name sites have unfortunately copied the information from it without verifying its correctness.

    Assalam alaykum
    Ahyan meaning (off course and other names) are not confined only in Qur anic derivation (direct or indirect words) since not all Arabic words and names are sourced from Qur an, So far many users of the Arabic language agreed in the meaning of Ahyan as a gift of Allah, then this site should respect their views because language expand/grow from different sources and this source is amongst them, its meaning only (as a gift of allah) not Ahyan as word/name is direct and indirect meaning from Qur an and Sunnah but word itself as per this meaning is a result of language growth in connection to that attached meaning (take good meaning from other words from Qur an and Sunnah) and create your own words with same meaning, if community take and use/apply it widely, this factorize the language expansion), therefore the meaning of Ahyan is a gift of allah (basing on language expansion) and Ahyan means perfect moment (basing on qur an word), In that essence lets us agree that recently Ahyan name has two meaning, One is gift of Allah and secondly is perfect moment (since any moment in Allah is perfectly planned)
