Yuan Huan (birth and death dates unknown), courtesy name Yaoqing, was an official who lived in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. During the 190s, he served the warlords Liu Bei, Yuan Shu and Lü Bu. After the fall of Lü Bu in 198, Yuan joined Cao Cao as an advisor. He was involved in a number of policy decisions, including the administration of tuntian. In the 210s Yuan was given the appointment of Prefect of the Palace Gentleman.

He died sometime before 220, and it is said Cao Cao wept for him. Yuan Huan left behind four sons, all of whom were known for their scholarly accomplishments. His descendants became one of the leading aristocratic families of the Jin Dynasty and Southern Dynasties.
