Question

 

My name is "Abnan"/"ابنان". I have been researching its meaning for years now. Can you please help? What does it mean?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

 

Answer

 

The word اَبنان is the plural of the word بُن, which refers to coffee beans.[1] We should try to keep a name that has a nice meaning.

 

 

Only Allah SWT alone knows best.
