ALSO KNOWN AS:
Aljani; plural: Aljanu; feminine: Aljana
Aljan technically is a local pronunciation of Djinn, but is usually intended as a synonym for Bori spirits. Urban Hausa people often prefer to identify Bori spirits as Aljanu, implying that Bori spirits are Djinn, giving them a Muslim context as opposed to names that hark back to traditional Hausa religions.
