IslamQA

I want to change the name of my daughter.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
My daughter is going to be 2 years old by this month. Her name is Tasfiah Tarannum Nuzfah (we have already performed her aqiqah with this name) but now we want to change her name following Rasulullah’s daughter name and other good Islamic name. Could you please suggest us on below issues:
(1) Can we change her name now?
(2) If we can (should we need to perform aqiqah again for new naming?
(3) Can you share hadith reference on subject matter?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 818/818/M=1434)

If you want to change the name of your daughter, you may do so. There is no need of performing aqiqah again after changing the name. We could not find any hadith stating performing aqiqah again after changing the name.

Allah knows Best!
