    Assalamu Alaikum.

    Can a boy named Hanaan? In many Arab countries it is used as a girl name (in Saudi, Kuwait,Yemen, Egypt etc). Is it common to name a girl with this name in any Arab country?

    Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,

    Hanaan is a common girl name among Arabs of the Middle East and Africa, and among Southeast Asians. As a boy name it is less common and is used by some Arabs and more commonly by Indians. It is acceptable for boys and girls both.
