Should I change my name?

0 votes
Is my name permissible, or should I change it due to it having un-Islamic meanings? Todd means fox, clever or wily (intending to be deceitful), and Christopher means Christ-bearer, I have heard one or the other should be changed due to it being undesirable.

You didn`t pick your own name. Therefore I dont think you can be hold responsible for it. I`d say keep it

You don't have to change it, but consider this:

The first is not pleasant, it means an animal as well as being deceptive, not really good.
The middle is very closely associated with Christianity.

Names are meant to be good and to show who you are.

You may not have chosen it like the other said, but you should consider changing it, especially if you're new.
