Is it allowed to keep the name Utbah?

I kept the name Utbah of my newborn male child, some of my friend are saying that the name is resembling with Utbah Saiba who gave too much pain to our Nabi (saws). Please advise me is it allowed to keep the name Utbah?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The name Utbah is correct. It has been the name of some Sahabah and Tabiyeen as well. 

Allah knows Best!
