  • Arrān (arabisch ارّان) war in mittelalterlichen islamischen Quellen die Bezeichnung des östlichen Transkaukasiens zwischen den Flüssen Aras und Kura. Die Bezeichnung kam nach der Islamischen Eroberung der Region für den südlichen Teil des antiken Albanias auf. Davor schloss der Begriff noch Gebiete nördlich des Kura mit ein und entsprach in etwa dem heutigen Staat Aserbaidschan. Nach einer Zusammenlegung Arrāns mit Aserbaidschan im 13. Jahrhundert verschwand der Name.
