Q: This is the way of kaafir actors and actresses. It has become a norm for them to merge surnames for themselves and for their children. I read about it and assumed you did not know hence your answer. I just wanted to inform you, not question you.

Bismillaah

A: If these names are kept with the intention of imitating them then obviously it will be impermissible.

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