Full Meaning of Hanaan

Hanaan is a direct Quranic name for boys and girls that means “compassion”, “sympathy”, “love”. It is derived from the H6-N-N root which is used in Surat Maryan:

[And when the son was born and grew up, he was told,] “O John! Hold fast unto the divine Scripture with [all thy] strength!” – for We granted him wisdom while he was yet a little boy, as well as, by Our grace, [the gift of] compassion and purity; and he was [always] conscious of Us. (Quran 19:12-13)
