Asalaamu Alaikum waRahmatullahi waBarakatahu,
What is the correct to choose a better name for myself according to Quran and Sunnah? I am in the West and don't have a Muslim name.
Jaza Khulla Khair.

Congratulations on coming to the true path of Islam .
You should choose a Muslim name.
The difference between Muslim names and most other religion names is that the Muslim names have a clear meaning ,e.g., my name "Asim (in Arabic)" means "Protector(in English)", while other religion names mostly don't have a clear meaning. You can check the meaning of the Muslim name before choosing a name.
There are many web sites giving Muslim names with the meaning in English.
On any search engine e.g. Yahoo, google etc.. type "Muslim names with meanings" and Insha-ALLAH the web sites will appear.
Some names include:
Here is a web site in which 5 converts have already changed their names :
I invite you to share your experience of conversion to Islam with the world on this web site.
