Ibn ‘Umar reported the Messenger of Allah ﷺ as saying:

Your names which are dearest to Allah are ‘Abd Allah and ‘Abd al-Rahman.
حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ، سَبَلاَنُ حَدَّثَنَا عَبَّادُ بْنُ عَبَّادٍ، عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ نَافِعٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَرَ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏
"‏ أَحَبُّ الأَسْمَاءِ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى عَبْدُ اللَّهِ وَعَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏
