I liked the name “Hishaam” and “Ibrahim” very much. So much so that I gave both names to my first son. My name is Rehan Masood and I gave my son the name “Hishaam Ibrahim”. Is it ok?

I personally would not give two names, in the West, I would recommend something like:
[Child’s name] [Father’s Name] [Family Name]
Plus it should be “Ibraaheem”, because in “Hishaam” the elongation is shown in the transliteration (shaa) so it should equally be shown in Ibraaheem; because otherwise it would be “Hisham”
So “Hishaam” or “Ibraaheem” in my opinion.

With respect to Aboo Mu’aawiyah’s kind advice, our staff’s position is that Hishaam Ibrahim is an acceptable name. Giving two names to a child is not practiced by Arabs, but it is practiced by many Desi cultures and it is Islamically acceptable. As for the spelling, Arabic name can be written in English however the parents wish, therefore Hishaam Ibrahim is acceptable. Bother Aboo Mu’aawiyah correctly points out the inconsistency between using one “a” vs. two, but this is still acceptable if this is how you wish to spell them.
Brother Aboo Mu’aawiyah’s advice is good and feel free to follow it if you wish.
