This answer was collected from Askimam.org, which is operated under the supervision of Mufti Ebrahim Desai from South Africa.

I find muslim names transliterated in too many ways. What is the proper way to transliterate the name that means proof? Is it Bourhan or Burhan?Which is the correct spelling?
