Zayn Origin and Meaning

The name Zayn is a boy's name of Arabic origin meaning "beauty, grace".

Zayn zoomed up the popularity charts thanks to former One Direction member Zayn Malik; it was one of the fastest-rising names of 2016. The name can also be spelled Zain; the feminine version is Zayna or Zaina.

It might also be seen as a spelling variation of Zane, as in the bestselling early twentieth century author Zane Grey, which sounds exactly the same but has a different root.
