MOHAMMAD ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR BOY NAMES IN MINNESOTA



Mohamed has made the list of most popular baby boy names in Minnesota, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Mohamed was the 98th most popular boy's name in 2011 in the state. The SSA says Minnesota parents named 73 boys after the founder of Islam in that year.
There are 317 people who practice Islam per 100,000 in Minnesota, according to a 2010 study by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies (ASARB). That means the state has the 18th largest Muslim population in the United States and the District of Columbia, behind nearby Illinois (first) and Michigan (sixth).
The most popular names for boys in 2011 in Minnesota were Mason, William and Jacob. The most popular girls names in that year were Olivia, Sophia and Emma.
