Even if a few of the above words do not have any other vowels, the letters that appear the most frequently with the AN ending are E, O, and a second instance of A. That means they are the most likely letters to be found yet, and you should use them as many times as you can over the next couple of guesses, such as LOGAN or REMAN.

To aid you visualize your remaining options a little better, cross out all words from the list that contain any letters that came out gray. It should not take long to get to the answer right now.
