Is This What America Will Look Like in 10 Years?
Jack, Joshua, Thomas, James and Daniel were the most popular boy baby names in the United Kingdom 10 years ago. Oh, what a difference a decade makes.
With Islam’s influence in the U.K., the demographics are changing and so are baby name choices. According to the United Kingdom’s Office of National Statistics, close to 3,500 boys born in 2013 were named Muhammad, with nearly 3,000 named Mohammed.
Even though Oliver was officially the most popular boy’s name, 18 variations of Muhammad made it on the list—making this Muslim namesake the nation’s most popular boy name for babies in 2013.
As Muslims continue making inroads into America, is this our future too?
