For the fifth year in a row, Muhammad is the most popular baby name in England

StaffRebel Columnist

Yet again, when account for spelling variations, Muhammad was the most common baby name in England.

As Breitbart reports, the Office for National Statistics revealed that Muhammed has pushed William out of the top 10 in the past recorded year. In addition, the fact Muhammad is the most common was masked by including only one spelling variation.

While Oliver and Olivia were reported as the most popular, Muhammad was only listed as being in 8th place. But when “Muhammad, Mohammed, and Mohammad” are included as one, the Islamic name comes first overall.

The default spelling of Muhammad is still ranked as first overall without other spellings taken into account in both London and the West Midlands.

James RISDON I think you have missed the point or intent of the article.

Don’t care.

Unimaginative people have been giving their kids popular names for centuries. Others seem to believe that if you give the kid the same name as a famous person they will magically acquire that famous person’s qualities, intelligence, popularity, strength, power, wisdom, etc.

It’s BS, of course.

My full name means “The partiarch from the from the small hill who takes over power through force and wears the crown.” I suppose, being from Montreal, that I do come from a small hill and I do have two daughters so I may, perhaps, one day be a patriarch. But I do not have a crown. I have never used force to vanquish enemies. My name does not define me.

So, go ahead. Call kids Mohammed. Maybe they’ll grow into the name. The odds, though, are that their friends will call them Mo for short, that they’ll just grow up listening to rap and skateboarding around town, and text their friends about how their parents ruined their lives by taking all the good jobs and not giving them enough stuff.

It’s just a name. It’s not their destiny.

Janice, why would you call an unbeliever a Christian? Why not clarify the issue by calling them what they are- secularists. Christians are having children. Secularists are not for various reasons. At the basic level their worldview has an inadequate foundation that gives them no hope for the future and only selfish pursuits until they shuffle off their mortal coil.

Secularism got rid of the infinite, personal God who provides meaning for life. With no God life is just built on slavish self-absorbed appetites. Now the god of Islam is filling that vacuum and since the lefties are knee-jerk reactionaries, anything that is anti-christian is a good thing.

God’s greatest judgement is giving people what they ask for.

Naming a male Mohammad and it’s variations would be expected in an Islamic nation, in Britain, that’s disconcerting!

Cathy R commented 2 hours ago ,"There are young Canadian Christian families that I know of having more than 1 or no children. My daughter has 5, 2 nieces have 3 and 4 and I know of others with 3 and 4 or more children. The media just wants everyone to think that only muslims are having big families. It’s all a hoax like everything else they shoot their faces off about. "

Thanks for the information and I’m very glad to hear that. When I refer to Christians, I mean people whose ancestors were Christians but don’t practice any more. I personally know only one practicing Christian. The rest of the people I know, fall into the category I mentioned, having none or only one child. Apparently, a country needs 2.2 births per woman to reproduce itself. Canada is well behind that number now, and the USA that was above it a few years ago, is also well behind.

That is because of Sex Education programs like Wynne’s, that teach kids to be Gay even before they reach Puberty.

Hey guys! Stephen and Keith! Stop blaming Muslims because Christians decided not to have children. Look around yourselves and see how many people you know who don’t have any. Blame them.

It must make roll call in class very confusing. Mohammed? Here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here you dhimmi, here, here you kafir, here, here, here, here, here.

Anyone not named Mohammed here? The sound of crickets…

Oh wait, writing this would be Islamophobic under M-103. Oops!

When will Baby Doc Trudeau come out of his closet?

I am surprised that our greedy Government has not come up with a Child Tax, a fee to be paid monthly, until the Child reaches adulthood. Of course, this would not apply to Muslims and their four Wives. They will receive Brownie points, in the form of cash, until the twelve, or more, baby Muslims grow up, if they ever do.

Meanwhile I have just had $600.00 cut from my pension and could end up on the street. Perhaps if I convert to Islam, I may get it back.

Right Justin?

Well! What do you expect when Christians stop having babies and Muslims have lots of them?
Muslims, like many other people around the world, see the family unit as important. They believe that they should produce grandchildren for the own pleasure and for the pleasure of their parents to enjoy in their old age. In many countries, grandchildren live in the same house with their grandparents and have a close relationship with them and other family members. It’s an entirely different family structure than we’re used to.

The Christian West has abrogated its responsibility to the family. In the West, women often have either no children or perhaps one child when they’re around forty, and their parents are too old to enjoy them for long.

The Marxists have been pushing this anti-Christian, anti-marriage, anti-white male, anti-family, anti-children agenda for decades. Why are we surprised that Mohammed is the most popular name in the UK? It looks as if Muslims haven’t listened to the Marxists. Good on them!! They have more sense.
