Mohammed is now the second most popular boys name in the UK apparently - or is it? click here and scroll down to the 'league table' and then look at boy's name number 2 and boy's name number 17

I'll bet there's more Rupert & Padington bears than Mohammed bears...

I do not even get into the top 20, sigh.

Number 2 is all different spellings of Mohammed, (the other spellings are Muhammad, Mohammad, Muhammed, Mohamed, Mohamad, Muhamed and Mohammod) and number 17 is just Mohammed, the most common spelling.

I read yesterday a BBC London radio station presenter asked listeners to give a name to a newborn lamb.

This item was quickly pulled when the poll revealed Mohammed to be the most popular suggestion.

Bet that made the producer disconnect the phone lines double quick.

"Mohammed is now the second most popular boys name in the UK..."

I'm not overly surprised.
