Muslim Name Question

Recommended Posts

as salaam alaiykum,

 

if an individual is named after an individual who was an actor because the father was obsessed with said actor should he change his name?

wa alaykum as salaam 

 

as far as I know a person only needs to change their name when it has a bad meaning. Many parents may call their children after somebody famous they liked but the name itself may not have a bad meaning.

walaiykum salaam,

 

say a man's name was Tom and he was named as such because his father was a fan of Tom Cruise (the actor)

 

[the above example is not factual but simply an illustration of what I am referring]
