I wanted to ask the permissibility of adding to your name for example if my birth name is hafsa ahmed , is it within my islamic right to add to my name to beautify it more for my own pleasure for example hafsa leyla ahmed.
. ( not my real name by the way) am i allowed to do this i would choose an islamic name of course, also could you kindly ask dearest sheikh the meaning of the name daania and the difference between daania and daniya names.
It is permissible to add names to your name providing that people know that these are your names and not your father’s name. it is not permissible to be called after a name that is not your father’s. Complex names are not part of the Sunnah as they were not used then yet they are not forbidden but they are not recommended either because they can make people a bit confused.
