The meaning of Ayan 

Grab a coffee, today we have a bit of a fun post on the blog… The meaning of Ayan.

Since I gave birth, so many people have asked me what ‘Ayan‘ actually means, truth be told, one of the reasons we chose this name was because it is truly one of the most multicultural names I have come across. It has such a beautiful meaning in many countries/cultures that it practically covers the world. So here it is 🙂
Hindu/Tamil meaning: Brahma – The God of Creation. 

Sanskrit: Soaked in the divine (as in Satyanarayan) 

Biblical meaning: ‘motion’, to arrive (related to Noah) 

Scottish: Lian which is pronounced as ‘Ayan’ is the biblical, Scottish variation of John. 

Hebrew: Nothingness, peace. 

Persian: notable 

Islam/Arabic: God’s gift 

Several African languages: Centre part of the soul. 
Every meaning so beautiful and unique, Ayan is a truly meaningful name, don’t you think? 
And as we dedicated a whole post to little Ayan, here are some snaps of him, enjoy!
