Keeping the name Abdullah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a quick question on rules of naming a child. I want to name my new born son Aadam Al-Abdullah Ibn Ibrahim Ali. Is this name valid and not against Islamic teaching? Some people say Al- is a problem as it specifies. From my understanding Al-Abdullah means the servant of Allah? Please advise?

A: You may name your child with this name, however leave out the Alif Laam before Abdillah. Just call him Aadam Abdullah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
