Can I name my son Muhaymin?

Assalsamu Alaikum,

With the grace of Allah I have kept name of my baby boy as MUHAMMAD MUHAYMIN. Kindly help me in telling whether this name is technically correct or not.
Some people saying allays (swt) name i.e.’ Muhaymin cannot be used directly.
Some people saying its Al-Muhaymin which cannot be used directly as it is used exclusively for Allah (swt).

Please help me.

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

It is permissible to name your baby boy as Muhaymin. The attribute of Allah is Al Muhaymin which must be used for Allah alone. However, Muhaymin without Al (or Alif and Laam) can be used for others.

And Allah Knows Best.
