Keeping the name Firaas Abdul Ahad

Q: I am going to put my new born son’s name as “Firas Abdul Ahad” فیراس. Its complete meaning in English is “Perspicacious” or “a person having good understanding/insight” and Servant of one Allah. Is it okay to have this name?


A: Yes.

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