A little too long for a young boy, but maybe it would be okay for a character. But what about nicknames? Like Latif? Weird.

Abd al-Latif Muhammad Taraghay Ulughbek, also known as 'Abd al-Latif, was the great-grandson of Central Asian warlord Timur. He was the third son of Ulugh Beg, Timurid ruler of Transoxiana (modern Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan).

Having been given the governorship of Balkh, 'Abd al-Latif served under his father. 'Abd al-Latif did not remain loyal to his father. Angry over the fact that he was to be passed over in the transfer of rule of Samarkand, he revolted while Ulugh Beg was marching to retake Khurasan. He defeated his father at Dimashq, near Samarkand, in the fall of 1449. Ulugh Beg later decided to surrender himself, and 'Abd al-Latif granted him permission to take a pilgrimage to Mecca, but while Ulugh Beg was on his way he was ordered murdered by his son. His reign lasted for only six months. He was succeeded by his cousin ‘Abdullah.

This name is so cool, but I do wonder why so many Arabic names begin with "Abd-Al"!
