Ohayon family name is derived from the word "live" and is a version of the Hebrew name "Haim" (life). This means the prefix Berber “O-“ or “son of”, hence the name means Ohayon is the "son of Hayon" (or Hayun). The word “Haim” appears many times in the Bible, but not as a first name. The first name “Haim” its various forms “Hai” or “Hia” and as a women's first name “Haya”, common among Israeli communities since ancient times.

Over time and as the contacts of the Jews with other peoples spelling and pronunciation of the name "Haim" was influenced by foreign languages. The name "Haim" got the form "im" or "Heim" in Spanish, "Heim" or "Himes" in Germany and in Alsace, "Hhgin" England, "Hayun" and “Ohayon” in Arabic-speaking countries. This name was translated into Latin forms "Vives", "Vita", "Vidal", and Arabic as "Yaish" or "Ayyash." One of the first mentions of the name "Hayan" is recorded in the 14th century in central France. Form "Hayan" recorded in France in the 15th century and the form "Hene" in Germany, in 1697.
