I think I read somewhere that Muhammad is now the top name in some European countries. No joke.

Yep found it, Muhammad is now the most popular name in Britain and in Oslo, Norway.

It is also the most popular name in Israel.

Fatima however, does not rank as high as Aisha and it's various forms (the name of Muhammad's favorite wife). But Aisha does not come near the popularity of Muhammad in western countries.

What happened to solid traditional names for boys like Aiden, Brayden, Cayden, Grayden, Hayden, Jayden, Thayden, Larren, Jarren, Orren, and Luca? (Alternative spelling mandatory.)

For girls: Siri or Cortana.

And for those too hip to let their little bundle of joy settle into one particular gender: Freetrade VentiNonfatPumpkinSpiceLatte.

I'm surprised that Cody or Savannah didn't pop up in southern states.

It would be interesting to see what made those changes.

lots of times it has to with certain people being popular at TV or in sports.

The trend is now going toward old names that were more popular in the 1910s-1940s. Thankfully. I hate the Aidans Caydens Kaylas and Kylies. Awful!

My 4 month old has an old traditional name, and most everyone I know having children now are going that route as well. It's only the younger parents who aren't nearing their 30s that are sticking with the made up names with odd spellings for their kids....as far as I see.

There were 6 Jennifer's in my elementary school. There are 3 nicknames for Jennifer: Jenny, Jenna and Jen. The other 3 Jennifer's had their last initial added to their name, what a joke. I always ask my mom why she wasn't more creative!!

If I ever have children their names will not be on the top 10, that's for sure.

I use to have 4 "Jolanda" in my class and 3 of them had last names starting with "B," so they were just called by their last name by everyone.

Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer tries to find out what the J. in his name Homer J. Simpson stands for.
In the end he discovers it simply stands for Jay

I like Aisha, it rolls off the tongue nicely. We actually considered it for both our girls. We ended up going with more traditional girl names. One was given a family surname for her middle, and my husband insisted on my middle for the other, claiming he liked it because it's traditional (Elizabeth) and sounds really classy with her given name. I still have naming regrets -- it drives me nuts, I dislike naming kids after the parents, even just middle names. Aisha was a leading contender for her middle name at the time, but whatever, can't do anything about it now unless I want to shell out $$ to legally change it. And I'm not THAT put off by it.

I have an 80's fad name, and grew up being one of at least 3 others by the same name in class. One year, there was 5 of us. Yeesh, it got old going by our surnames in school to differentiate between us.
