Ariffin Road , now signaged as Jalan Ariffin, is a small road off Transfer Road. It is named after Wan Chik Ariffin (read also Mohd Ariff Mansion, Hutton Lane, Ariffin Court, 138-hutton-lane and Masjid Wan Chik Ariffin), the early 20th century Malay millionaire and patron of Penang boria who donated land for the creation of the road.

There was a sizeable Malay community living in that area, especially from the third quarter of the 19th century. Though the number has declined, they still worship at the nearby Masjid Jamek Jalan Hatin along Hutton Lane.

Ariffin Road is one of two roads in Penang named after Wan Chik Ariffin, the other being Ariffin Court a short distance away. Masjid Wan Chik Ariffin along Perak Road was also built by him.
