From: http://www.salafitalk.com/entries/14-Brief-Insights-Sahaabah-Uthmaan-bin-Affaan

He is ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan al-Umawee – His kunyah was Abu ‘Abdullaah and Abu ‘Amr. 

He is the third of the Rightly Guided Khaleefahs (Successor) of Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam). From the earliest of those who entered into Islaam. Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wassallam) married his daughter Ruqayyah to him. She passed away during the days of the battle of Badr, so after that he married his other daughter, Umm Kulthoom (radhiyallaahu ‘anhaa) to him. Thereafter he was named “Dhun-Noorayn” meaning: The possessor of the two lights. He was assassinated and martyred in the year 35AH, and he was 82 years old. It is said that his kunyaa was also Abu Laylaa, and Allaah knows best.
