 "He is Allah (swt), the Creator, the Maker Who shapes all  forms and appearances  His are the most beautiful names.  All that is in the heavens and the earth  extols His limitless glory  and He is the Mighty, the Wise."  (Quran Chapter 59:24) A convert to Islam is not obliged to change their name to a Muslim name. However, if the non-Muslim name has a meaning that is against Islam then selecting a new name would be advisable.  Changing your name to a Muslim name can be done:  - either through the official name changing channels, resulting in a name change on your bank account, passport etc.  - alternatively, it can be as simple as selecting your new name and asking others to use it, leaving your official name as that given on your birth certificate.  The latter option tends to be the most popular amongst new Muslims, and is perfectly acceptable.  Having decided on the new name the convert can tell friends and family as appropriate, realising that telling parents the name they chose for you as a baby has now been changed, could be a delicate matter. A number of converts continue to be known to their families by their non-Muslim names, at least until the family have accepted their change in religion.  There are many Muslim names to pick from, and the names listed below are only a few out of the many. Some converts prefer to pick a Muslim name that is similar sounding to their non-Muslim name, whereas others prefer a brand new name that is different, a totally new name for a new start.  We hope you enjoy this unusual opportunity to decide on your own name, should you wish to. Please note this is for your advise and reference only, we also would like to make it clear that no name related questions will be responded to. If you want to consult anybody on your own name or the name of a new child then please refer to your family and friends. ATTRIBUTE NAMES Please keep in mind that there are some recommendations with the naming convention in Islam, a person should not be named by an attribute of God alone, but the attribute should be preceded with 'Abd' meaning 'servant'. eg 'Rahman' should be 'Abdur Rahman', 'Aziz' should be 'Abdul Aziz' The 'Abd..' should not be treated as a name in itself, eg 'Abdul' does not make sense as a name on it's own.
