I've heard a lot of people say a lot of atrocious things about that first article. Like that their country is being overrun by Muslims. I would like to add some facts to that. According to the Daily Telegraph, the #1 name for boys is Oliver, but if you combined all different spellings of Mohammed/Muhamad/whatever, it would move from 12th to 1st place. What they didn't consider though is that if you combined Oliver and Ollie, they would again surpass the Mohammeds in numbers, as well as Harry/Henry. Also, it's really not newsworthy because it is very common among Muslim families to name their firstborn son Mohammed. There is no similarly common tradition for Christian first names.
