On birth, in most Arabic countries that I’m familiar with, children are given one name. Osama bin Laden was named Osama at birth, and that was probably the only given name written on his birth certificate.

Unless it’s the long-form birth certificate it’s an obvious forgery. Everyone knows he was actually born in… oh… let’s say France. ;)

I’m curious though, is there evidence that Bin Laden’s son was actually named after (then) Crown Prince Abdullah? Given the way OBL felt about the Al Saud family, I’d find this rather surprising… more likely that it was just selected as a pious (“Slave of God”), popular name, no?
