To go with baby’s rosy cheeks and sweet gentleness, Leyan offers a name meaning “tender,” “gentle,” and “soft.” This feminine Arabic name is a form of Layyin, which can also be interpreted to mean “resilient.” Other roots link Leyan to Leanne, inspired by the British Lee, meaning “meadow” or “clearing,” and the Hebrew Anne, meaning “favor” or “grace.” From its resilient tenderness to its pleasant respelling of a well-known favorite, Leyan’s warmth and tranquil rhythm make it a worthy contender.
