Hi. We enjoyed your website. My husband and I
are based in San Diego, California. We are searching for the
perfect Hindu Baby Boy name, and so far Ayan is the top-most
choice. We were wondering if you would be kind enough to help us
find the meaning of your beautiful name. Could you please include
your resource. Thanks. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

So kind of you to reply to our inquiry. It was a pleasure browsing
through your family's website that your father has so diligently
created. Our best wishes to him on his successful journey as a
surgeon and as the family historian.
We both love your name! Here are some more meanings we have found
- In Tamil, 'Ayan' is the name of Brahma, the Creator.
- 'Ayan' is also a form of African drumming .

My wife Bhavna has been in correspondence with you regarding the
name 'Ayan'. I wanted to give you the good news that we have been
blessed with a baby boy and we have named him Ayan. Ayan Satya was
born at 4:41 AM on February 16. He weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces and
is 20 inches in height. Mother and baby are doing fine. In
addition to the beautiful meanings of the name 'Ayan', it is also
an acronym of last two letters of our names ('ya' and 'na') - that
made the name all the more attractive to us. Thank you for all
your help and please stay in touch.

Bhavna, Satya and Ayan.

Mail from (Cengiz Yilmaz) Irfan Ayan
regarding the meaning of 'ayan':-
There is one meaning of ayan in turkish; 1 - obviously or clearly,
15th September 2004
.....Your Name Ayan... has been correctly
defined by various people... and someone from Turkey has given the
meaning it has in Urdu/Persian. Ayan (with the last 'n' not
pronunced fully... but half i.e. nasal tone sound..)... means
something that is open and clear / something like : "something
vividly clear on the face of it" or prima-facie. Bai`yyann ...
i.e. open signs... There is a verse of Iqbal wherein he has used
the word "Ayan".
Too na mit jaayega... Iran ke mit jaane se
Hai aya`n yu`rish-e-Taa`taar ke afsaa`ne se !
Paas`baan mil gaye Kaabe ko sanam-khaane se !

...............My neice (eldest sister's
daughter) delivered a baby boy... and they named the boy Ayan.
When i heard it... i was curios to know... the dimensions of its
meaning(s)... That is how i reached your web-page. The way you put
your page.. .and your photograph itself conveyed to something
basic (basic instinct) in me... that you were a good soul. All
else becomes secondary after that..................

.....Ayan in Tamil also means Shepherd. Of
course, in this case, the pronunciation is long: Aayan: as in
Abbas or in Ayaz......

My name is also Ayan. I am originally from Somalia, and now I live
in the US in Arizona. In Somalia Ayan means "the lucky one".
However in Somali Ayan is the female form of the name, and Ayanle
is the male form. It sounds as though it would be the other way
around doesn't it? At least that is how it sounds to me. It was
very interesting for me to see your website and learn of all the
other meanings of Ayan. The name has brought me lots of luck for
all of my thirty years....... I really liked it a lot. It was fun
to find out all the different meanings of "Ayan".
I don't have any suggestions to improve it, I think it's really good......

I was (as many other visitors on your site) looking for the
meaning of the name Ayan. Most people that have named their child
Ayan or are planning to do so, do this for the many beautiful
meanings the name has!..........In my country the name Arjan is
very common, so my parents wanted to be creative and named me Ayan,
without knowing any meaning of the name. Now, knowing all these
meanings, I feel blessed to have been given this name!

Myself, Alok and my wife Sheetal are based in Noida, India and had
decided that if we would be blessed with a baby boy, we would name
him Ayan. Apart from all other beautiful meanings this name has,
in Sanskrit this also means "Speed" in English or "Gati" in Hindi.
I appreciate your effort in creating this website. I have attached
a picture of our son Ayan Srivastava.
Thank You for your email and your posting of the picture of Ayan
Srivastava. This is such a beautiful name that I was tempted to
explore more meanings of this name and when I searched this name
on the internet, I came across this site. This name was searched
out by my mother from Sanskrit Shabdkosh at her School Library. We
were amazed to see your website and the list of other meanings for
this name. This is a great effort and I really appreciate this
effort of yours.

Thank you very much for your efforts in gathering all the
meanings for the name Ayan.
searching for the meaning for a while and today, I just
discovered your web page. I didn't realize that there would be
so many different meanings.
The closed that I came to finding the name Ayan was Ayanna and
Ayanna in Kiswahili means "beautiful flower, wildflower." I'm
not sure if that has any derivates from Ayan.
