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.

Turkish pop star Gulsen Colakoglu has been jailed pending trial on charges of “inciting or insulting the public to hatred and enmity” after she made a joke about religious schools in Turkey, according to the state-run Anadolu news agency.
The charges appear to be related to a video circulating on social media from a Gulsen concert in April, when she joked about one of the musicians.
He “graduated from Imam Hatip (religious schools). That’s where his pervert side comes from,” she said.

Several Twitter users could be seen sharing the video on Thursday with a hashtag calling for her arrest and saying it is offensive to associate the schools with perverts.
Gulsen denies that she has committed any crime and is appealing the arrest, according to her lawyer Emek Emre.
After her detention, Gulsen shared a message on her official Twitter and Instagram accounts, apologizing to “anyone who was offended” by the joke and saying it had been twisted by “malicious people who aim to polarize our country.”
“I made a joke with my colleagues, with whom I have worked for many years in the business. It has been published by people who aim to polarize society,” she said.
