Ayman (Arabic: أيمن‎, also spelled Ayemann, Aimen, Aiman or Aymen)[1] is a male name of Arabic origin. It is derived from the Arabic Semitic root (ي م ن) for right, and literally means righteous or he who is on the right, similar to the Latin name Dexter. It also means right-handed, blessed and lucky. It is agreed upon in Arabic to be a masculine name. In Pakistan, Ayman was appropriated to be used both as a masculine and feminine name. This is because of the popular woman figure "Umm-e-Ayman" who raised prophet Muhammad, which parents name their daughter after. However "Umm" means mother of, and Ayman was her son.
