Ninety nine names of Allah are proved from Sahih Hadith. It is recorded in Bukhari:

Allah has ninety nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever remembers them will go to Paradise.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ:‏ إِنَّ لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ اسْمَا مِائَةً إِلاَّ وَاحِدًا مَنْ أَحْصَاهَا دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ‏‏.‏(بخارى، رقم: 2736)

Allah knows Best!
