Islam specifically emphasizes giving a beautiful name to your child. The name should have a strong and positive meaning because it affects the child’s personality. Actually, naming is actually the right of the father in Islam. Later this right can be given to the mother or any other relative. During Prophet Muhammad’s era, he himself changed the ill names of people who entered the circle of Islam. Their names were replaced with better-meaning words.

In fact, recent scientific studies have shown a close relationship between a person’s name and his personality. It is observed that people with similar names have similar personalities. In addition to social background, a name also affects future decisions, marriage issues as well as career.

Modern Names For Muslim Boys with Meanings

In Islam, it is not permissible to choose a name for themselves or their child to be something offensive or disgraceful. Naming your child something pleasant with good meanings has significant importance for Muslims because they believe that having an excellent Islamic name can inspire them to lead a purposeful life.

Those names should not be given to the baby, which changes his personality or turned into an effect of sarcasm. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaho alaihe Wasallam) constantly altered names which were defamatory (Tirmizi) The title of one of those brothers of Sayyidna Umar had been Asiyah (meaning, disobedient), the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe Wasallam) changed it to Jamilah. (Tirmizi and ibn Majah)

Besides, the Noble Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe Wasallam) adjusted such titles as Aziz, Utlah (hardness, thickness), Satan, Hukm, Ghurab (crow), Habab (snake, Satan). (Abu Dawood) He also modified the titles, Harb (war) into Silm (serenity), Muztaja’ (one that lies down) into Mumbais (one that is ready, prepared), Banu az-Zania (the product of adultery) into Banu ar-Rushdah (good people) Banu al-Maghwiyah (one that misleads) into Banu ar-Rushdah.
