Can I name my company Seven 86?


Asslamalaikum , hope this finds you well.  I previously asked a question about keeping the name.  Seven 86.   For my clothes company.  This name will be printed on the jackets, shirts, jubbas etc and I am still waiting for a reply. I would really appreciate if you could get back asap. 



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

As-salaamu `alaykum wa-ramatullahi wa-barakatuh.

Seven 86 does not represent Bismillah.

You may keep your company’s name Seven 86.[1]

And Allah Ta`ala Knows Best.
