There are several possible origins to this name. It is most widely accepted to be derived from the Persian word, جهان (jahan), meaning, “world; universe.” However, it can also be traced to several different Arabic words with JHN as their roots. These include:
- جهانة (juhanhun), meaning, “young.”
- جهن (jhen), meaning, “closer.”
- جهنة (jhenh), meaning, “twilight blue.”
As of 2010, Jihane was the 334th most popular female name in France.
