Hanan Origin and Meaning

The name Hanan is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "graciousness".
A chief member of the tribe of Benjamin, and another obscure Old Testament name that few parents, even those tired of Aaron and Zachary, would consider. But with a pronunciation that rhymes with Gannon, it has the strong, straightforward, two-syllable sound that's in step with modern style.
