Mohammed to become favorite name in UK


If England’s population is only made up of three percent Muslims, but the name “Mohammed” is the second most popular name, this tells me that the secular humanist British public is not making babies at the same rate as their Islamic neighbors are.

It’s the same story in the rest of Europe.

Now, following the “population explosion” line of logic, I feel it will be necessary, demographically, to set aside large sections of Manchester, London, and Chelsea in order for the Muslim population to have a homeland in England.

The other European nations must also follow suit, setting aside large parts of major cities (Paris, for example, could become the Muslim capital of Europe) for their Muslim inhabitants to have a place to live by Sharia law because, as we know, they can’t live under the government of the European nations, as those governments are incapable of giving the Muslims enough rights to conduct themselves as they wish.

England must also hand over most of the largely unused cathedrals, churches, and university chapels to the Muslims in order for them to convert them to mosques. (They would become Muslim holy sites).

Of course, members of the British public who hold land in the areas of the new Muslim state must move immediately and cede all their belongings to the new Muslim government.

If the new Muslim nation wishes to set up their government offices at Buckingham Palace, the royal family will need to be moved. In order to accommodate the sensibilities of the British public, the Muslims may decide to allow the British public one small wall on the Western side of Buckingham Palace to remain in British hands so that the ceremonial changing of the guard and other British pastimes may occur, just as long as no British people set foot in the Palace area itself, as it would be an affront to Islam.

Mohammed is on its way to becoming the most popular boys' name in England and Wales by next year, the daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

The name was second only to Jack in 2007, which has been top for the last 13 years, the newspaper reported.

According to the report, there were just 385 more children called Jack and because of the high birth rate among Muslim families, the name is set to become the most popular boy's name by next year.

While Mohammed is in 17th place, its position would be number two if all 14 variant spellings of the name were taken into account, the Telegraph said.

While 6,772 boys were called Jack, 6,387 were called Mohammed or a variant.

'One who is praiseworthy'
An analysis by the Daily Telegraph of the names, compiled each year by the Office for National Statistics, shows there were 3,009 babies called Mohammed, the most popular spelling; 1,595 Muhammads, 903 Mohammads, 429 Muhammeds, 349 Mohameds, 39 Mohamads, 12 Muhameds, 11 Mohammods, nine Mohmmeds, eight Mohamuds, seven Mahammeds, six Muhammeets, five Mohmmads and five Muhammods.

There were 5,803 babies called Thomas, which is listed by the ONS as the second most popular name.

According to the Telegraph's report, Muhammad is regularly cited as the most common name in the world. It means "one who is praiseworthy", and is often given to boys as an honorary prefix and is followed by the name by which they are commonly known.

Muhammad Anwar, professor of ethnic relations at Warwick University, was quoted by the British newspaper as saying "Muslim parents like to have something that shows a link with their religion or with the Prophet."

Overall, Muslims account for three per cent of the British population, about 1.5 million people, the report said, adding that the name Mohammed first entered the top 30 in 2000.

Grace is the most popular girls' name.
