The Arabic name Muhammad has risen to become probably the Number 1 baby name in the entire world when all its spellings are counted together. Muhammad is Number 1 in England as well as throughout the Arab world and also ranks among the Top 100 boys’ names in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, and Australia.
Along with Muhammad, Arabic boy names in the Top 500 in the US include Amir, Malik, Nasir, Omar, and Xavier. Arabic girl names in the US Top 500 include Aaliyah, Amina, Layla, Fatima, and Zara. In the Arab world, popular baby names include Maryam, Noor, Ahmed, and Ali.
Muslim parents of every nationality often choose Arabic names, so other choices such as Zayn and Zara, Samar and Rashid, Jana and Yousouf are widely used around the world.
