Al-Rahm & Al-Rahman.

Al Salamu 'Alaykum.
Sayyiduna Abu Hurayra رضي الله عنه reported: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “(The word) Ar-Rahm* (womb) is derived from Ar-Rahman (the Most Merciful), and Allah said: ‘I will keep good relations with one who keeps good relations with you (i.e. family), and I will sever relations with one who severs relations with you.’”
[Hadith Qudsi from Sahih al Bukhari]
* which is why blood relations are known as "rahmi rishtey" in Urdu.
'Alaykum Salam.
