Meaning of Zayn

Zayn is a Quranic name for boys and girls that means beauty, adornment, grace, excellence. It is not directly mentioned in the Quran, but it is derived from the Z-Y-N which is used in dozens of places in the Quran, such as:

Say: “Who is there to forbid the beauty which God has brought forth for His creatures, and the good things from among the means of sustenance?” Say: “They are in the life of this world unto all who have attained to faith – to be theirs alone on Resurrection Day.” Thus clearly do We spell out these messages unto people of knowledge! (Quran 7:32)

We have indeed placed all that is on the earth as its adornment in order that We may test them, who among them has the best deeds. (Quran 18:7)
