Out of the meanings given, the Sanskrit origin
ones are basically correct. Derived from the root i with cognates all
over the Indoeuropean languages e.g. ειμι, iter, иду, signifying
motion, one gets aYan, the act of going, or the path, and is used both
literally and figuratively. A peculiar development also led to it
meaning a house or place of refuge.
But all that is about ayana, not aayana; i.e. the first vowel is as in
cut or cot, not as in car. That can happen in Sanskrit if one uses the
prefix A to the above word, in which case the meaning changes from
going to coming, and Ayana usually means approaching, though it can
mean income as well. Alternatively, since ayana has celestial
significance, Ayana can mean belonging to the solistice. I do not
think that either of these two aayan is used as a name.
Forgot to mention that AYAna (or aayaan if you prefer) is a very
famous character n mythology: AYAna ghoSa was the husband of rAdhA,
the heartthrob and lover of kRSNa, the playful pastoral God, an
incarnation of viSNu, the protector amongst the Hindu trinity.
AYAna can mean arrival, and natural temperament, but I do not know if
the name is anyway connected to the word.
The sanskrit meaning is incorrect. satyanArAYaNa comes from satya =
truth (or, etymologically, that which exists from the root as, to be,
with obvious cognates) + nArAYaNa (descendent of nara, man, with
cognates in Greek and Latin). The word nArAYaNa was identified as the
first man, the creator, etc. in the past, but now refers to ViSNu, the
protector amongst the Hindu trinity.
Hi, we are Hindu and named our son Ayan. One
thing we liked about it was that it is such a cross-cultural name. The
meanings we researched are as follows:
1. Hindu/Tamil: Brahma, the God of Creation
2. Sanskrit: Soaked in the Divine (as in Satyanarayan)
3. Biblical: Motion, To Arrive (related to Noah); Iian, which is
pronounced like Ayan, is the Scottish variation of John
4. Hebrew: Nothingness, Peace
5. Persian: Notable
6. Islam/Arabic: God’s Gift
7. Several African Languages: Center Part of the Soul.
you know any other meaning?? Please let me know!
