  1. Salamualaikum,

    Names do not have such effect on a person's nature.

    And what do dates and time of birth have to do with the name?

    Read this Fatwa from Shaykh ‘Abd al-Kareem al-Khudayr:

    There is nothing wrong with giving names that do not have bad meanings and which have good meanings but do not imply excessive praise of the one who is so called.

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did change some names because they were ugly or because they had bad meanings. A name does not have any effect on a person's character, apart from reflecting optimism for him. On this basis, one should give one’s children good names and not give bad names.

    So we should use names like ‘Abd- Allaah (“slave of Allaah”), ‘Abd al- Rahmaan (“slave of the Most Merciful”), Muhammad, Ahmad, etc., and we should not use names which have bad meanings, such as Sa’b (difficult), etc.

    End quote...

    Also remember that it is nothing more than a whispering of Shaitaan that the name Hamzah is not correct. It is the name of one of the mightiest sahaabah. Your son's name is perfect insha Allah. The reason for his nature can not be the name, per me, and Allah Knows Best.
