If we look at the names of the Prophet’s children, we observe that they are all beautiful names. The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, always encouraged giving names with good meanings, and he, sallallaahu‘alayhi wa sallam, would change names that had bad meanings.

Sufyaan Ath-Thawri (a scholar) said: “It is said that the right of a child over his father is that he should choose a good name for him, and to marry him off when he is mature enough, and provide him to perform Hajj, and to teach him good manners and etiquettes.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, named his children on the day of their birth:

Anas ibn Maalik (a Companion) narrated that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Tonight a boy was born to me, so I named him after my father Ibraaheem [Abraham].”
