asalam alaykom my dear brothers and sisters.i want to get your opinions on this one,ever since i became Muslim,my parents rarely call me and always sound not happy when talking to me.as am just remaining with a month before i go back to my country in shaa Allah,,i want to know how i will address this issue,my traditional name means 'WIFE OF god' which i know such names are not accepted in Islam,when i go back to my country in shaa Allah,i need to change the name on my national card which i cannot do without the presence of my parents,i bear the name of my fathers late mother which he cant accept me to change it.i hate this traditional name but i really do not know how to tell my parents to stop using it.i cant wait until they accept Islam for me to tell them as i do not know how long that will take.how should i approach them about this?

I understand that Khadijah is a name of Arabic origin, given to baby girls who were born prematurely; and that it means: ‘Early Baby’.

What is certain is that it was the name of the Prophet’s first wife, and the mother of all his children. That being so, why is you worried?

I think her birth name isn't khadijah. She embraced Islam and chose this name . She hasn't returned home yet after her conversion to face her family. Let alone change her name.
