Meaning of Haneen

Haneen is an indirect Quranic name for girls meaning strong love, longing, desire, nostalgia. It is derived from the H6-N-N root which is used in chapter 19 of the Quran:

[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)

    Good job, as you guiding people for islamic names and there description.This is islamic website.
    but here in Quran refrence 19:12-13 you write Yahya(A.S) as john, why?

  2. on Wednesday 17th of December 2014 06:47:27 PM

    @1: Because “John” is the Western form of Yahya and some Quran translators write “John” instead of it.
