Can names belonging to Christians be given to Muslim children? Can we give them names like Petrus, Matta, Josef and Peter?

YazdırSend to friend
A Brief Description of the Question: 
The names that Muslims have today are the names of Arabs. We can give our children the name Isa because he is a prophet. Can we use the names like Petrus, Matta, Josef and Peter since they are his apostles? If those names were wrong, they would not have been the names of the apostles. Can we use any names whose meanings are not bad?
The Answer: 

The names of prophets are usually used by Muslims. However, the names of the apostles are generally used by Christians; therefore, they have been identified with Christians. When a person has such a name, he is thought to be a Christian. Therefore, giving children the names that are in compliance with the Islamic tradition is advised.
