my son Shahmir Faisal is 1.6 years of age. He started walking at the age of one year and 4 months. He is still not able to talk although some time he says “Ammi” or “Papa”. Someone has told us that his name “Shahmir” is heavy on him. Coz Shahmir means “King of the kings” which is only GOD.
Now tell us whether we should change his name or not?
Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)
This name is not appropriate. You should change this name as Shah means king and Mir means leader, chief.
