Ishan means Warrior of death in Hindi. na (Also called Ishan, Eshan, etc.) is the name of North-East direction in Hindu culture. It also denotes a Hindu god who is one of the Guardians of the directions and is identified with iva . na also has a symbolic meaning. In Hindu customs, North represents wealth and happiness while the East symbolizes knowledge and peace; na is a combination of both. It is also considered to be the name of the god of Vastu stra. It also is the name of 5th head of iva that faces the upward direction.

Literally, the word means "God's Grace" being a conjugation of "ish" meaning God and "shana" meaning grace
