Great name, tae name the wean. Muhammad tops the list in popular boy's names, in Glasgow. Personally I think that this shows the influence, of the influx of new ( mostly Muslim ) neighbours..... Welcome to Glasgow. :D

This was just a survey of the 56000 members of BabyCentre. The actual most popular boy's name was still Oliver, but this was only from 2013 records.

Oliver - aye right. I don't know one family, who have recently found themselves on these shores, having sons, with the name Oliver. Muhammad rules in Glasgow. :D

The top name for baby boys in a England and Wales was Oliver.

Scotland, however, opted for the following top 10:

Jack
James
Lewis
Oliver
Daniel
Logan
Alexander
Lucas
Harry
Charlie

Muhammad came in at number 52.

There tends to be a lower variance of first names in Muslim communities. We could therefore have 95 different boys names and five named Muhammad and certain newspapers would be printing screamer headlines saying most baby boys were named Muhammad.

The same could be said for Irish Catholic or Scots Protestant communities. Totally agree that parts of the media appear to whip up unsavory tripe ( catches those who can't stand the idea )
