UK 2016: Mohammed Most Popular Boys Name Once Again

Once again, Mohammed is the most popular boys name in the United Kingdom for 2016.

This has been the case almost every year since 2009.

From The Daily Mail:
Mohammed is the most popular name for boys in England and Wales- but it doesn't top the official list because there are so many different ways to spell it.

There were 7,361 children born last year called Mohammed, Muhammed, Mohammad or Mohamed, according to the Office for National Statistics, which would have made it the number one boys name if the variations were taken into account.

...There are officially 14 different ways to spell Mohammed - which means 'one who is praiseworthy' - and the variation in spelling can depend on a family's background, whether they are from an Arabic-speaking country and differences in pronunciation.

The most popular variation on the list is 'Muhammad' which placed 12th with 3,730 boys born with the name.

Oliver was the most popular boys' name for all regions of England except London and the West Midlands, which both had Muhammad as the top name.

This marks the first time Muhammad has been top in two areas, having overtaken Oliver as top name in the West Midlands from 2014.
This shows plainly there is no "integration" occurring. If you're born in another country and you want your child to integrate, you give them a local name so they're treated like everyone else.

Here's a snapshot of what Muslims in the UK feel comfortable telling pollsters they believe:

As I said, this is what they'll openly tell pollsters they believe.

The majority of Muslims in the UK are Pakistanis and Bangladeshis.

In their own nations, where they feel comfortable expressing their views, 82-84% say they support Sharia law.

Trevor Phillips, the UK "Equalities Chief" who popularised the term "Islamophobia," said in April he thought Muslims would "blend" in better and admitted he "got almost everything wrong."

"Twenty years agoÖ I published the report titled Islamophobia: A Challenge for Us All, we thought that the real risk of the arrival of new communities was discrimination against Muslims. Our 1996 survey of recent incidents showed that there was plenty of it around. But we got almost everything else wrong."

"We estimated that the Muslim population of the UK would be approaching 2 [million] by 2020. We underestimated by nearly a million. We predicted that the most lethal threat to Muslims would come from racial attacks and social exclusion. We completely failed to foresee the urban conflicts of 2001 that ravaged our northern cities. And of course we didnít dream of 9/11 and the atrocities in Madrid, Paris, Istanbul, Brussels and London."

"For a long time, I too thought that Europeís Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britainís diverse identity landscape. I should have known better."

In May, the BBC produced a program named "The Last Whites of the East End," which showed how cockney Brits were being displaced from East London despite their families having lived there for hundreds of years.

As one of the men they interviewed said, "We've always been a country where immigration's been a part, but not on this scale... I feel that we've been ethnically cleansed."
