Balducci, like I said...: Times ON LIne:

Muhammad is No 2 in boy's names.
Helen Nugent and Nadia Menuhin

Muhammad is now second only to Jack as the most popular name for baby boys in Britain and is likely to rise to No 1 by next year, a study by The Times has found. The name, if all 14 different spellings are included, was shared by 5,991 newborn boys last year, beating Thomas into third place, followed by Joshua and Oliver.

Scholars said that the name’s rise up the league table was driven partly by the growing number of young Muslims having families, coupled with the desire to name their child in honour of the Prophet.

Muhammad Anwar, Professor of Ethnic Relations at Warwick University, said: “Muslim parents like to have something that shows a link with their religion or with the Prophet.”

Although the official names register places the spelling Mohammed at No 23, an analysis of the top 3,000 names provided by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) puts Muhammad at No 2 once the 14 spellings are taken into account. If its popularity continues – it rose by 12 per cent last year – the name will take the top spot by the end of this year. It first entered the Top 30 in 2000.

Thanks Kregg.

Ah, I see.

By the way, I found this page listing popular names in the U.S., and it lets you investigate the popularity of a name since 1992.

http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/babyname.cgi

I was curious, so I looked up the results for Mohamed etc. in the States. It would be interesting to see where it ranks if these statistics were combined.

I like Mohammed as a name, you can shorten it to Mo, or perhaps Ed.
