A Quranic Name for Boys

Meaning: Benefit, Blessings and Profit

Eiman is variant of Ayman and has the exact same meaning and pronunciation (see below for full meaning). You can use either Eiman or Ayman, both are correct and acceptable. If you like this variant more and you'd like to pronounce it the way it is spelled (different than the original name), this is perfectly acceptable. For more details please see the main entry at: Ayman.

Full Meaning of Eiman

Eiman is a Quranic name for boys that’s directly mentioned in the Quran. Eiman means “blessed” and “good fortune”, and literally means “on the right side”. In Arabic (and Islamic) culture the right side is associated with strength, blessings and good luck.

And when he came to it, he was called by a voice from a bush in a blessed spot, on the right side of the valley: ‘O Moses, I am God, Lord of the Universe.’ (Quran 28:30)

In Eiman the stress is on the first part of the word, Ay, and the second part, man, is said quickly and with a short “a”, which is read like the “u” in humble. Don’t say Aymaan, because that changes the word to mean oaths.
