Etymology & Historical Origin - Ayaan
There are two things we know for certain regarding Ayaan. One, it’s an Eastern based name; and two, it’s cross-cultural in terms of usage. Other than that, we’ve had a difficult time verifying the origin and etymological meaning of this name. Here’s what we understand to be true (although we’ve been unable to confirm as factual due to lack of legitimate sources). In Arabic, the name is said to mean “Gift of God”. In Hindu, Ayaan may indicate the path of the sun (rays of the rising sun) or “soaked in the Divine”. In various African languages we’ve heard Ayaan means everything from the center part of one’s soul to “brightness” and “good fortune”. Some say it means “notable” in Persian and “nothingness” in Hebrew. So please use this name at your own risk because we are unsure about the meaning. The potential languages from which is derived (Arabic, Sanskrit, etc) are not easily transliterated into English.
Popularity of the Name Ayaan
You can hardly blame us for being unable to verify any factual information on this name; it’s only been in circulation in the United States since 2008. It seems to us that Ayaan is a name only used by either Arab-Americans or Indian-Americans, two ethnic groups making up a small percentage of the overall U.S. population. It is for this reason that we highly doubt Ayaan will climb much further up the charts.

Personality of the Boy Name Ayaan
Romance is the hallmark of the Six personality. They exude nurturing, loving, and caring energy. Sixes are in love with the idea of love in its idealized form - and with their magnetic personalities, they easily draw people toward them. Like the number Two personality, they seek balance and harmony in their life and the world at large. They are conscientious and service-oriented, and a champion for the underdog. These personalities naturally attract money and are usually surrounded by lovely material objects - but their human relationships are always primary. They thrive in giving back to others rather than being motivated by their own desires. This is when they achieve great things. Sixes are natural teachers, ministers and counselors.
