Should I change the name Nadeem?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I was told by my arab friends that (Nadeem) means the followinhg:Nadeem (also spelled Nadim or Nedim; Arabic: نديم) is a masculine given name. It means “drinking companion” (from the Arabic ندم nadima, “to drink together”). The name is common among all communities in the Middle East, including Christians and Muslims, and in the Balkans.

My question is should I chang emy name as I feel very bad and also feel that I regret a lot.
