It is the infantís vested right to be honored with a beautiful name. When choosing a Muslim baby name for the child, it should be done with the intention that the baby will be blessed with the barakah of that name.

According to a Hadith a child must be named promptly on birth. The baby name should be meaningful. 'You will be called by your name on the day of judgment' this is another reason why it is important to chose a baby name with good meaning. The prophet (pbuh) was very particular about it. The Prophet has suggested names of the Prophets or Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. He has said,

"Keep the names of the noble Prophets, Allah loves most the names Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. The most truthful names are Harith and Humam, while the most disliked are Harb and Murrah (war and bitter)."

Psychologists now apprehend the wisdom of the effect a personís name has on his life. But Muhammad (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) had revealed this fact to his followers already 1400 years ago. His teaching to his followers was that children should be given good names, and that meaningless names and those having unsavory connotations should be avoided. Subsequently, we find many incidents mentioned in the Hadith where Rasoolullah (Sallallahu-alayhi-wasallam) changed the names of people with this object.

 Another aspect of a personís name is that it bespeaks a personís religion. Hence the name of a Muslim is usually of such a nature that by the mere mention of it, the listener understands that the person so addressed, is a Muslim. It is for this reason that our elders laid great emphasis on keeping good and pleasant names.

But since the widespread of Western culture throughout the world, it has become customary amongst Muslims not to consider the meaning of the name when naming a baby. Many do not even bother to ascertain whether it is permissible for one to keep such a baby name or not. Often, even if the baby name is correct and suitable, then by way of abbreviating it, its Islamic connotation is distorted. In fact, at times it even becomes unlawful to address one Rahman; Abdur-Razzaq, Razzaq and Wahaab are the exclusive epithets of Allah Taíala. To address any creation, by such a name, is there unlawful.
