Assalamulaikum, My surname from birth is Rahman. However I have come to realise that it is not allowed to take befitting Allah alone so my question is, is leaving my name as it is haram,shirk,kufr? I have told my family that it is not allowed but they didn't agree.

Walikum Salaam. Your name should be Abdur Rahman. It is haraam to call yourself Rahman for Allah tala is Ar - Rahman. The word Abdur means slave, indicating your the slave of Allah. In conclusion your name should be Abdur Rahman
