Name 'Sannan'

Q:

I have named my first child Sannan Ali which means brave. please tell me is sannan a name of any murderer or enemy of the 12 imams?

IS THIS NAME OK?

A:

Salaam alaikum

Some historical records point to a man by the name of Sinan Ibn Anas who severed Imam Hussain's (as) head. In any case he was there fighting the Imam in Karbala. On that basis it might be best to avoid this name.

Allah knows best
