Names of Tazkiah aren`t Entirely Reprehensible

Is it permissible to give a child one of the names of Allah (Al-Asma` Al-Husna)? What is the ruling of Sharia on the names of Tazkiah {An Arabic term alluding to "tazkiyah al-nafs" meaning "sanctification" or "purification" of the self} and pessimism? Did the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) change these names? Is the name "Mu`min" one of them?
