Mohammed 'Most Popular' Name in UK

First UK, then France, then the rest of Europe ?

Mohammed and its alternate spelling Muhammad have overtaken such stalwart monikers as George and Joseph on the list of the most popular name for boys born in England and Wales.

The popularity of the Prophet’s name reflects "the diverse ethnic mix of the population,” according to the Telegraph.

The name Mohammed alone is more popular than Henry, Edward, Michael, Adam and Charles.
