    Hanaan is used as a feminine name throughout Saudi,Kuwait, Yemen and Egypt; seems almost everywhere in the Arab region. You suggest this name for boys as well. Is it common to name a boy Hanaan in some Arab country? Pls clarify.

    What is the name of the sahabi who write every word of Muhammad peace be upon him?

    it may be a different enunciation… Hanan (female), Han-Ahn (male)…which is seldom named.
    Like most young parents, people are coming up with odd names and claiming it is historic…
    someone told me Ronan is a companion of the prophet.
