I’m a convert from Europe married to a Saudi Arabian man. I am pregnant now and we had a big argue about the babies name, does it have to be the fathers name? And his grandfathers name? And then the great grandfather? And is it now allowed to have both last names ? Like the mothers name and the fathers? I would appreciate your help sooo much.. i really don’t know what to do..

The name must be followed by father’s name and if required grandfather’s name. The Mother’s name is not included in Islam with a person’s name at all. Some say only children born out of wedlock are called after their mothers!
