Assalamu alaikum.

Would you please enlighten if there's any ruling on keeping the same name more than once in the same family? My wife's name is Sarah. My brother also wants to name his daughter Sarah. Now, we've heard it may not be prudent to keep the same name twice or more in the same family. It has been said that on the Day of Judgement we'd be called by our name and family identity and that is why it is wise to have unique names in a family. Is it truly so? I mean, is there really any ruling as such?

Please give us guidance and advice in this regard. Thank you in advance. May Allah bless us all.

Allah hafez
