The name Mohammad is becoming the fastest growing baby boy name in Germany, a media report said.
German borders were opened to migrants in the country in 2015 and the population growth in the country is attributed to the rise in Arabic names in the country. In half a decade, the name has reached to 26th position in the most sought after names from 96th position, The News reported.
It is predicted that in the coming three years, Mohammad could rank in the top ten names of the country.
In the Die Welt report, compiled by Austrian newspaper, data suggested that Mohammad rocketed from 5th overall number to 3rd most popular name.
In May 2016, a UK survey revealed Mohammad as the most popular name in London and the second most popular in all over Britain. The only reason that the name didn’t top in England and Wales is because of the various ways in which it is spelt- Mohammad, Muhammad, Muhamed, etc.
