    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 241/134/H=1433) Affan was the name of Hadhrat Usman Ghani's (رضى الله عنه) father. You can keep this name or keep Raihan which means fragrance. We do not know the meaning of Maseen and Hanoon, do not keep them.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
