Answer



In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful


The meaning of the word Ahnaf (أحنف) is 'afflicted with a distortion of the foot' (feet turned inwards). [1]

However, in its superlative form, it can also take the meaning, 'most upright' or 'best guided.' [2]



And Allah Ta’āla knows best
