An is also Chinese, and used in Chinese compound names or as a first name in itself. It is pronounced as "Unn" and it means "peace" in Chinese too.

I have just read that despite the feminine associations of the meaning, and the feminine sound, the name particle 'An' in Chinese names is far more common in Masculine names than it is in Female names.
