Hindi/Urdu to English Translation - What does the word "jaan" mean?
I have a friend from Saudi Arabia. We have a very close friendship and he already admitted that he likes me. Yesterday he suddenly called me "jaan". I asked him what it means but he teases me, saying that he can't tell me lol. He said that he likes calling me as "his jaan".
I'm really flattered that I have a special name now, but i really wanna know what jaan means. English translation please? And plus points for some explanations. :D

Hi there Madzzz ;),
Lol, He's calling you 'His Jaan' ? Hehe :D
The word 'JAAN' actually means - LIFE. so when someone calls you 'Jaan' or their 'Jaan' - they mean
you're their life - they mean they care for you and love you. Jaan usually means darling or sweetheart and is referred to one's close and dear ones.Source(s): Love is in the air ;), Make sure he really mean it. Hehehe :D

Jaan means sweetheart or honey. It's an affectionate nickname that can also follow ones name, as in "Sofie jaan."
