  • i didn't know that but I'm not surprised

    • iam curious about why you are not surprised :)

    • It's a very large religion and the most popular and most used name in that religion. now while Christianity, Hinduism and Judaism all have large numbers of followers none of those religions have a name so synonymous and popular within the religion. So I'm not so surprised that the name Mohamed or variations on it would be the most "popular" or most used name in the world

    • :) thats informative thank you
