Assalamu Alaykkum

I'm pregnant and I need some suggestions regarding naming baby boy. I like to name AYDIN or ASHFAQ for baby boy, could you suggest a second or first name for these two names? Is it must to have name with 'Mohamed', for ex : Mohamed Aydin. Please help... Also suggest me some good names with good meaning for baby boy with first and second names..

  1. What about Muhammad Aydin or Muhammad Ashfaq?
    We pray for your safe delivery of your baby.
    Thank you Sister

  2. I have never heard of a name that HAS to have Muhammad infront.

    It may be a cultural thing. But it's not a muslim thing. You don't have to have Muhammad or even a second name. He can be ayden ----- ( last name) . Is there a reason for the second name?

    As long as it's a good name that is appropriate. I live in An English speaking country and ashfaq is a nice name, but there are many ways that name can be made fun of which I will not mention I would personally avoid that name, but it's ultimately up to you.

    We are told to choose good names for our children, as on the Day of Judgement we will be called by our names and by our father's names.

    When thinking about what name to give a child, it might help to look through books and websites that list names and their meanings, as the meaning of a name is important as well as how it sounds - give your child a name that means something positive.

    Also, look at how the name fits with the child's last name, and say it aloud - can you call it in a park or schoolyard without feeling embarrassed? Another thing to look out for is whether the combination of names works - try to avoid things like "Ann Teak" (which sounds like "antique"). You may also want to consider whether the name has any negative associations in your country - sadly, some names may trigger strong reactions in people who do not understand the meaning or reason behind the name (for example, names such as "Adolf" can trigger very negative responses, even though the name itself doesn't mean anything wrong).

    I'm not aware of any rule that a Muslim has to be named Muhammad. But, The Prophet (peace be upon him) was the best of men, so if we're looking for a good and inspirational name, you can't go wrong by considering the names of Allah's Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them).
