Mohammad Is Now the Second Most Popular Boy’s Name in United Kingdom
And it takes the number one spot in London. Mohammad is already the number one most popular baby name in Israel.
Mohammad is the second most popular boy’s name in the United Kingdom, just behind the name Oliver, according to the Liverpool Echo. Olivia was the most popular girl’s name, followed closely by Lily and Sophie.
The implications of the name “Mohammad” being the second most popular boy’s name is clear. Not only are more Muslims residing in the UK, but Muslim families are increasingly giving birth to boys.
In fact, Muslim have the highest fertility rate in the world. Globally, Muslims’ fertility is 3.1 children per woman. That’s far above the replacement level of 2.1. Compare that to Christians with an average of 2.7 children per woman.
Other religions and groups are below the global average of 2.5, with Hindu fertility at 2.4 and Jews at 2.3. Buddhists, indigenous, and tribal religions all have fertility levels so low that their populations cannot be sustained.
In sharp contrast, Islam is, unequivocally, the fastest growing religion in the world. Muslims are among the youngest and most fertile populations on earth.
With 1.6 billion members of the Ummah, Muslims form roughly 23% of the global population.
Disturbingly, radical Salafism, from which most jihadists find their inspiration, is among the fastest growing sects of Islam, according to German intelligence services.
“If current trends continue, by 2050 the number of Muslims will nearly equal the number of Christians around the world,” reports Pew Research. “In Europe, Muslims will make up 10% of the overall population.”
As Europe continues to absorb more refugees from predominately Muslim territories, Islam will continue its exponential rise in Europe, unimpeded.
