I wanted to name my son Sufyan...I was reading the story if abu sufyan and so wanted to name my son sufyan.But it says Abu sufyan so what was his actual name or does sufyan have a good meaning as such?.

Please see this page for the meaning of Sufyan, also spelled Sufian:
Sufian is the name of various sahaba (companions of the Prophet peace be upon him), such as Sufian bin Abi Zuhair, Sufian bin Asad, Sufian bin al-Hakam al-Thaqafi, Sufian bin al-Sufian, Sufian bin al-Thabit al-Ansari, Sufian bin Hussein, and many others.
