Keeping the name Jaheem

Q: Is the name Jaheem correct? I know it means blazing fire if it's used in the context of Jahannam.

A: If this word is written with a big haa (جحيم) , then this is one of the names of Jahannam, and if this word is written with a small haa (جهيم) , then it refers to a person who frowns.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
