GHUFRAN (غفران).  Unisex.  Arabic name, derived from the vocabulary word ghufrān, meaning "pardon, remission." (An English and Arabic Dictionary, Catafago, 1873)

... Another work which must have sorely offended orthodox Muhammadans is the Risálatu 'l-Ghufrán (Epistle of Forgiveness). Here the Paradise of the Faithful becomes a glorified salon tenanted by various heathen poets who have been forgiven—hence the title—and received among the Blest. This idea is carried out with much ingenuity and in a spirit of audacious burlesque that reminds us of Lucian... (A Literary History of the Arabs, Nicholson, 1907)
