Marrying a revert who did not change their name

Nasihah (Advice): Success – Accepting Islam
 
Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: “Successful is one who has entered the fold of Islam and is provided with sustenance that is sufficient for his needs and Allah makes him content with what he has bestowed upon him.” (Muslim)
Question and Answer:
Q. Is it necessary to change a Muslim revert’s non-Muslim name to a Muslim name for a Nikah to be valid?
 
(Question published as received)
 
A. Once a person accepts Islam, he/she should be given a suitable Muslim name.
If however, a person is not given a suitable Muslim name after accepting Islam and a Nikah is performed using a non-Muslim name, the Nikah will still be valid.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
