Gender: M Meaning of Zain: "beauty, grace" Origin of Zain: Variation of Zayn, Arabic Zain's Popularity in 2016: #680

Zayn and the more Western-friendly Zain sound exactly like the popular Zane but have a different root, in Arabic and African cultures. The name was made familiar to Europeans and Americans by British singer-songwriter Zayn, born Zain Malik. This is an easily-translated choice for a family that wants to bridge cultures, but you have to accept that people will be forever spelling the name "wrong".
