    Muhammad
    is most popular name for baby boys
    in London and
    in The World!

    The figures emerged in a detailed regional breakdown of figures published last week by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    It is the first time that the Muslim name has been shown to the top choice for parents in any part of the UK. In previous years no regional figures were disclosed, only nationwide totals.

    In fact,
    London is not the first European capital to see Muhammad become the number one name for baby boys. In Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Oslo the name has already gained the top slot.

    In recent years the ONS has refused to divulge regional lists of popular baby names.
    It is likely that Muhammad has been the most popular choice in the capital for a number of years already, but it has never been demonstrated conclusively until now.

    Experts believe that internationally around 15 million people are called Muhammad, making it the most popular male name in the world.

    Mr Murtaza Shibli of the Muslim Council of Britain said he was not surprised to find Muhammad had become the most popular boys name in parts of the country.
    "People choose it because of their love of the prophet Muhammad, and they believe the name will bring happiness and abundance," he said.

    "Also because of its meaning - the praised one.
    Also there is a belief that if you do name your children Muhammad they will follow the good example of the prophet.

    Labour Force Survey shows the Muslim population is growing 10 times faster than the rest of the population. Last year more than 2.4 million people identified themselves as Muslims, according to the survey's findings, up more than 500,000 in four years. In the same period the number of Christians fell by more than 2 million, to 42.6 million.

    And out of all these Muhammads, one will be the Mahdi - either now or in later generations. Yes, sister, do post the source.
