    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 566/477/B=1433) Nafi’ (نافع) means one who gives benefit. It is not good to name only ‘Nafi’ as it is one of the Names of Allah. But, if add ‘Abdul’ before it and name as ‘Abdu-al-Nafi’, then it will be alright.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
