Meaning of Shaan

Shaan is a direct Quranic name for boys and girls that means “greatness”, “importance”, “rank”, “stature”, “significance”, “majesty”, “matter”, “affair”, “business”, “activity”.

In whatever activity you may be engaged, and whichever part of the Quran you recite, and whatever deed you do, We are witness to it when you are engaged in it. Not the smallest particle on the earth or in heaven is hidden from your Lord; and there is nothing smaller or bigger but is recorded in a clear Book. (Quran 10:61)

    My mum named me in 1966, as Shaan, and I’m named after her best friend, who is a female. My mum is the coolest for giving me this awesome name.
