How can you tell when your nation has been overrun and occupied by 7th century barbarians?
Well, there’s a few ways. If you notice riots where the participants are holding signs that say things like “DEATH TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE ISLAM”, that’s one way to be sure.
Another way to tell is to look around town and see how many animal brothels have sprouted up, or perhaps an upswing in weddings to little girls, those are signs for sure.
One more way to tell if your nation has been overrun and occupied by 7th century barbarians?
If the most common name for newborn boys is Mohammed.
The name Noah was putatively considered the most popular boy’s name for 2017, having been given to 635 new-born boys in the Netherlands. But as VoE reports, a journalist from broadcaster Powned did some research into the database, however, and noticed that another name, a non-traditional Dutch name, was slightly more prevalent.
This journalist checked for Mohammed and its alternative spellings.
He thus counted:
Mohammed 221, Mohamed 211, Muhammed 110, Mohammad 51, Muhammad 43 and reached a total of 636. Other forms like Mohamad, Muhamed, Muhammet, Mouhamed, Muhamad and Mahamuud could not be checked for “privacy reasons”.
Of course, other forms of Noah like Noa and Noach should be checked as well for the sake of fairness: both, however, were not listed according to the Dutch journalist.
The author says, it is the second year in a row that Mohammed is the most popular name for baby boys: In 2016 there were 724 baby’s named Mohammed (or one of it’s Arabic alternatives) in the Netherlands.
He also mentions that the same tendency was seen in England in 2016: It is not Oliver, but Mohammed (with all its permutations), that is the most popular name for baby boys.
