Shayan is a gender-neutral baby name of Native American origin. It may come from the Dakota word šahíyena, meaning “people of a different language,” referring to foreign speech. It can also be a variant spelling of Cheyenne, referring to the Indigenous tribe orinating in the present-day Midwest and Canada. Though this baby name originates from North American shores, you can hear Shayan across Asia and South America. Thanks to its links to the Persian name Shayaa, it can also translate to "deserving," "worthy," or "beautiful." Today, Shayan can be a clever choice for bilingual babies and families. No matter where baby is from or where they go, baby Shayan can live life with an open mind.
