Gloomy demographics: Nur and Maryam join Muhammad in top baby names list, George falls five places

For years Muhammad has been racing up the chart of the country’s most popular baby names – and now he has been joined by his sisters Nur and Maryam.

The two girls’ names have been among the most popular of 2014, according to website BabyCentre.

The data shows a surge in Arabic names in the UK this year, with Omar, Ali and Ibrahim all entering the boys’ top 100 for the first time.

For girls, Maryam has shot up 59 places to number 35, while Nur is a new entry in the girls’ top 100, jumping straight to number 29.

And Muhammad has risen an astonishing 27 places compared to last year to claim the number-one spot for boys…

    This doesn’t tells the whole story. Mohammed is just one mohammedan name.
    Add all the mohammedan names (for boys & girls) and then compare the aggregate with the combined names of non-mohammedans then you’ll see the clear picture. mohammedans will outnumber native Britons by huge margin.
