Eurabia Alert. By Sarah Womack in the Telegraph (thanks to Writer Mom):
Mohammed is set to overtake Jack as the most popular boys’ name in Britain as a result of the high birth rate in Muslim families, which is driving the British population to a record high.
A report from the Office of National Statistics says the highest birth rates are in the Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities, both predominantly Muslim.
Jack was the most popular boys’ name last year, chosen for 6,928 babies. Mohammed – taking into account all of its variant spellings – overtook Thomas to lie in second place with 5,991 babies named.
