What is the meaning of Ameen and of Ayman?
Alhamdulillah we are a married couple and are expecting a baby soon. We have selected the names Amin and Ayman for our baby. We found the meaning of Amn to be honest and trustworthy. Can you confirm this and indicate if the correct spelling is Amin or Ameen? Can you give the meaning of Ayman?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Ameen and Ayman are good names to keep.
Ameen means trustworthy, honest and faithful. It is also one of the titles of our beloved Muhammad Salallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. (Names for Muslim Children; Pg.26; Darul-Ishaat – 1991). Ameen is a more appropriate spelling.
Ayman is from the root word Yumnun  which means one who is blessed.& (Lisanul Arab; Pg. 464; Darul Hadith, Ed 2003)
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
