I want to know whats the meaning of this name hannan


Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


Al-Hannan is one of the names and attributes of Allah Ta’ala. It means extremely compassionate and merciful. It would be better to affix the name Abdul before it i.e. Abdul Hannan. However, it is not necessary to do so. The name Hannan by itself means sympathy, affection, compassion etc.

And Allah knows best
