The names “Zayhaan” and “Zaydaan”

Q: Please advise if we are allowed to keep the following names for a baby boy: 1. Zayhaan 2. Zaydaan. I have been suggested these names and I am unsure of the meaning etc.


A: We have not come across this. They do not seem to be Islamic names.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
