I know my name is something bad, but I'm not talking about my circumstances.. Just a question in general..can a Muslim change their name? Is it against Islam if there is no real reason apart from not really liking it? Thank u!

I think so. My mom and all her sisters that live in a Muslim country changed their names. So I'm sure its alright.

Of course you can, as many times as you like, as long the name does not have a bad meaning or to do with any other religious beliefs?
