    Are you sure this is the name? search in sanskrit dictionaries don't show any anything. – The Destroyer Feb 17 at 16:59

    I think it is a distorted form of श्रेयान् or श्रीमान्. – user17294 Feb 17 at 17:01

    @hanugm "Kid names" sites can't be trusted. They even say non-Sanskrit names as Sanskrit. – The Destroyer Feb 17 at 17:02

    @hanugm हान means gone or "act of abandoning" which means "without Sri". Not sure if we can give meaning like this. How can this be a name of Vishnu? Vishnu means with Sri or Lakshmi. Looks like अपभ्रंश. – The Destroyer Feb 17 at 17:07
