Assalamalikum mufti sorry for asking again but i have seen a sahabi name in the pdf u shared
Sayyidunā Ḥarām Ibn Milḥān
Can i keep just milhan name? And what is the meaning of milhan?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

In the celebrated work Usd al-Ghaabah, Ibn al-Atheer (R) has recorded two Sahaabah with the name Milhaan: Milhaan ibn Ziyaad at-Taaee (R) and Milhaan ibn Shibl al-Bakri (R). Milhaan is a suitable name for boy and girls. It gives the meaning of beautiful, pleasant, alert and intelligent

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
