Meaning of Zayyan

Zayyan is a Quranic name for boys and girls that means “beautifier”, one who makes things beautiful or improves things.

It is not directly mentioned in the Quran, but its root (thus its meaning), Z-Y-N, is used in the Quran in dozens of places, such as 10:24 in the word wazzayyanat (became beautiful, became adorned) . For this reason we consider it a Quranic name.
