Meaning of Hanoon

Hanoon is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means “affectionate”, “sympathetic”, “kindhearted”, “loving”. It is derived from the H6-N-N root which is used once in the Quran when speaking of Prophet Yahya. The English name John and the Hebrew name for Prophet Yahya, Yohanan, are also derived from the H6-N-N root:

[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)
