Allaah’s Names

Question: AsSalamu alaikum,
I know Allah’s attributes are eternal and that He has an infinite amount of attributes and we only know of a few. I also know that He call Himself by certain names but I do not know if to say His names are eternal also. Can you tell me if His names are eternal or not?

Answer: Wa alaikum salaam,
Just as Allah’s attributes are eternal so too, his names are eternal. Allah exist from eternity and has always been known with His beautiful names.

And Allah knows best.
