Is it possible to list 124,000 prophet names?

As per the Hadith above, there are 124,000 prophets in Islam, but is it even possible to make a list of all the names of those Nabi?

We have listed the names of 41 prophets in the Holy Quran and Islamic scripture above. There are around 88 names of Prophets written in the Holy Bible, but Muslims question the authenticity of many of them.

There are around 4,500 years between the time when Prophet Adam عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ came to this world, and the birth of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Allah sent these 124,000 prophets in between this time, which means there were hundreds of Prophets alive at any point in time.

Due to the lack of divine data, it is impossible to list the names of all 124,000 prophets of Islam.
