Can a Muslim Girl Change her Given First Name?
  • Question:

    Can a Muslim girl change her given first name if she wishes to?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    She should not do so unless there is a bad meaning attached to it. Some scholars had names which they didn’t like but stuck with in order to not disrespect their parents.

    And Allah knows best.
