Abu Huraira went to Makkah with Tufayl to meet the noble Prophet. The blessed Prophet asked him, “What’s your name?”

“Abd al-Shams, servant of the sun” replied Abu Huraira.

“Instead, let your name be Abdal-Rahman, servant of the Merciful,” said the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasalam). If anyone thinks what I wrote is wrong, please say. Hope this helps, salaam.

His name at birth was Abd al-Shams (servant of the sun). However, as a child, he had a cat and became known as "Abu Hurairah" (which literally means "Father of the Kitten" or more idiomatically "Of the kitten").
