Keeping the name Muhammad

Q: My cousin has a baby boy. She would like to keep the name Muhammad. Is it permissible to name a baby Muhammad without a name after that? If so, please can you let me know what name would be suitable to have after the name Muhammad?


A: From all Islamic names, Muhammed is the best name. Only keeping the name Muhammad (without another name) is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
