    You can keep your name either Abdul Azeem by adding Abdul before Azeem or only ?Azeem?. Azeem is amongst the common names of Allah. When applied for Almighty Allah it has different meaning in contrary to His slaves. If you do not have any difficulty, then choosing another name is better.

    وجاز التسمية بعلي و رشيد من الأسماء المشتركة ، و يراد في حقنا غير ما يراد في حق الله تعالى لكن التسمية بغير ذلك في زماننا أولى ، لأن العوام يصفرونها عن النداء ، كذا في السراجية۔  (درمختار).
