Changing the Name “Dalaa`”

I have applied to the court to change the name of my three-year old daughter (Dalaa`) as it contradicts with customs, social values and Islamic Law. This is in addition to the fact that this name is meaningless and holds negative connotations that don`t befit a little girl and her parents. This name has brought shame and disrespect to my daughter, me and her mother. Being keen on raising my daughter according to the teachings of Islamic Law, I have taken actual steps to change it and hope that your Grace would issue an official letter or a Fatwa to convince the court to change it.
