I want to know one name meaning it is good or not,’SHADIN’

Please send me its meaning


Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

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

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


The meaning of ‘SHADIN’ is ‘gazelle fawn’. (Young gazelle)(Hans wehr 461, Cambridge dictionary 508)

Although it is permissible to keep such a name, we advice you choose a name of one of our pious predecessors. Hopefully, the child will be blessed with some of the noble qualities of the one his named after. Names have a great psychological effect on the child. Therefore, you should ensure that the name has a beautiful meaning.

And Allah knows best
