Names and Nicknames
My name is Muhsin, which is one of Allah's Beautiful Names. Whenever somebody who knows me wishes to call me, he will say "Muhsin," a name that I cannot change since it is recorded in all official documents pertaining to me. Is it unlawful or Makruh (disliked) for me to have this name? And who carries the burden of the sin - is it upon those who named me, or upon me?

Statements after Names
When we mention our Prophet's name - or the name of - any other Prophet and Messenger - we say, "Sallallahu Alayhi wa-Sallam," or "Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him"; when we say the Messenger, `Isa or Musa, we say, "Alayhi as-Salam; or "upon him be peace," when we say the names of Companions, we also add, "Radhiyallahu `anhu," or "May Allah be pleased with him"; when we say `Ali's name, we say, "Karramallahu wajha," or "Allah honored his face." During the Tashahhud we say, "As-Salamu `Alayna wa 'Ala Tbadullahi As-Salahin" or, "Peace be upon us and the righteous servants of Allah." On what grounds do we say these specific phrases of supplication after mentioning these, and can we use these phrases for any pious Muslim, and if not then why?
