Can we use the name Rayyan for Boy and Liyana for a girl baby?


This is an official answer by Staff

Rayyan can be used for both boys and girls, more for boys, and in hadith it is mentioned as the name of one of the gates of Paradise.

Liyana is another version of the name Linah mentioned in Quran 59:5 and means soft and tender, used for girls only.
