Assalamualaikum. My younger brother's name is Nafiyan.. Is it a Quranic name? Plz, tell me the meaning of Nafiyan and whether the name should be kept or changed..


This is an official answer by Staff

Nafiyan, if pronounced [(N)ew + m(A)n] + [(FI)lm] + [(UN)der], means "a beneficial [one]". I haven't seen it used as a name, but there is no need to change it. It comes from the N-F-AIN Quranic root, so it would be an indirect Quranic name.
