The name Muhammad is now listed as one of the top ten most popular names for boys in the United States.
According to KTLA, Muhammad made its way to Baby Center’s top ten names on their website years after it first entered the top 100 in 2013. The site’s global editor-in-chief Linda Murray said the name made its way to the top due to its multiple ways of spelling and religious origin.
“Muslim families often choose Muhammad for firstborn sons to honor the prophet and bring blessings to the child.The name also has multiple spellings, and that helps a name get into the top 10.”
However, Liam took over the number one top spot after taking Jackson out of its consecutive six year spot. Baby Center also mentioned that Sophia remains the #1 names for girls.
