MPs named Mohammed

They say that Mohammed, if you include all its variations, is the most popular boys’ name in the world. (You’d be hard-pressed to find a Mohammed in a non-Muslim family, though. In fact I’ve never heard of any. If any blog readers know of some non-Muslim Mohammeds, let me know, out of curiosity.) Anyway, for this Monday I thought I’d do all the people on Charley who have the name Mohammed in their name, or any of its spelling variations that I can think of.

Saif Sayed Mohammed Ahmed
Amena Mohammed El Sayed
Mohammed Ata Hakimi
Mohamed-Ali Hilal Jaafar
Jamal Mohammed
Petra Loretta Muhammad
Aesha Amera Muhammed
Mohammad Reza Shirazi
Muhammed Saad Siddiqui

Quite a short list here. Probably because it’s a Muslim name and Muslims are a small minority in the United States — no more than one and a half percent of the population, sez Wikipedia. But I think it was a worthy topic anyway.

    I can’t be 100 percent sure his family wasn’t Muslim but I did know a boy in school named Mohammed. The only reason I think he might not of been Muslim is I remember him sometimes mentioning things that happened “at church the other day” or mentioning people he knew from church. He was a very nice boy too.

      Maybe he was talking about the mosque. I don’t know what they say to mean something that happened there — whether they say “at mosque” or “at church.”

    None of the Muslims I know ever call it church, that’s for sure.
