Salam. Inshaallah soon I will officially be changing by name, but for now I just want to start going by a new one. I had a few names picked out but I think I got one I really like. This is it المنصور مجاهد الدر. In roman letters its al-Mansur Mujahid al-Derr. (Derr is my current last name which may have some arab roots from what ive been reading). Do you think this name makes scene? is it good?

Assalaamu alaikum

I'd go for option 2. The prophet Muhammad :saws: is narrated in a hadeeth as saying: ".... The names dearest to Allah are Abdullah and AbdurRahman..."
