can I name my daughter: Tabarak?

Question:

can I rename my daughter: Tabarak?

Answer:

names as words indicate meanings; and when called for the baby become as indication, it is recommended for parents to improve their children’s names by choosing Islamic names that indicate their identity and affiliation as the names of the prophets and the Sahaabah (female and male) may Allah be pleased with them, and for the good names ,it refers to read some of the books of Hadith.

And the meanings of the names of persons are not always identical with the qualities of the holders so it is preferable to name the persons with good names to avoid some critics of their holders.

And the name (Tabarak ): is an indication  to Allah in the Qur’an; about ((    Blessed is He who placed constellations in the sky, and placed in it a lamp, and an illuminating moon.)) Al-Furqan 61 and ((Blessed is He in whose hand is the sovereignty, and Who has power over everything)) A- Mulk 1, and this name means the increased and multiplied blessings and good things by Allah; in addition, it cannot be said to be blessed because of Allah. If around the acronym to scientific we note on the girl, I don’t think there is an objection prevents this name.
