    When you reverted did you change your name?

    :

    Question in title.

    I haven't and I don't plan on changing it. I like my name, and well that's basically the only reason. I don't suit any of the Islamic names anyways, can't even pronounce most of them correctly.

    Sisters at the masjid wanted to give me a new name and I told them I was keeping my name. They just said it was what they'd call me, that I didn't need to change it. I just didn't get why they didn't want to call me by my name.

    True, but being inclusive about names is a positive thing?

    Someone pious must/might have named that baby and to include them only to find out they're not Muslim is a good conversation to have. At least it brings the most important topic to the table right at the start, in any relationship, business or personal.

    No. But I already had a Muslim name to begin with.

    Anyway if I had another name I wouldn't change it.

    Re: When you reverted did you change your name?

    I definitely want to change my name, as my new identity (and everyone who believes) is found in the teachings of the Holy Quran.

    Re: When you reverted did you change your name?

    No, I didn’t change my name because Kyle can still be a Muslim and if I changed my name to Islamic, would half the people even know it was Islamic or would they think it’s pissibly Hindu, or something else lol!

    Kyle can be Muslim. I’m Kyle. I’m not changing it. If someone wants to call me something in Arabic, they can say “Abdullah” or “slave of God” which is the best name in Gods eyes.
