Arham (means more merciful)

Is it suitable to keep such name for boys. It is derived from "arhaman nir rahim" and is not Allah subhan watallh name. According to few scholors, it is not a siffat of Allah so it can be kept as name.

Answer

 Arham is different from ar-Rahman. It is like Ahmad (Islamic name) and al-Hameed (name of Allah). For this reason you can use Arham with no problem.
