Can someone’s Hebrew name be halleluka or would that be problematic?

Someone mentioned to me that it would be, but I couldn’t find any source for it.

If they're combined as one name I don't see why it should be any different than say מיכאל, גבריאל, רפאל etc

I just came across a Rabbi that was actually named מהללאל הללויה!

He wrote a sefer on the Torah called קודש הלולים among other writings one of which was actually called ספר הללויה
