Mohammad Most Common Name For Males In Oslo, Norway

Apparently, the most popular name for males in Oslo, Norway is ..... Mohammad. And Jørgen Ouren of Statistics Norway is very excited about that.

And for the last four years, Mohammad surpassed Jan and Per in popularity.

As of 2013,  8.4% of the population in Oslo is Muslim, or 2.4% of the Norwegian population. There are over 150,000 Muslims now living in Norway, most of them from Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan and Somalia.

Back in 2009, Mohammad ranked tops for UK baby boys.
