The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Whats so shocking about that? Mohammed already is the most common name in the world from what I've been led to believe in the past.
  2. It tells us nothing of merit…

    5,991 boys were named Mohammed last year in the whole UK,(Population 61 million, total of 669,531 M/F births in 2006)

    The most popular names for baby boys in 2006

    1 Jack 6,928, 2 Muhammad (all spellings) 5,991, 3 Thomas 5,921, 4 Joshua 5,808, 5 Oliver 5,208, 6 Harry 5,006, 7 James 4,783, 8 William 4,327, 9 Samuel 4,320, 10 Daniel 4,303, 11 Charlie 4,178, 12 Benjamin 3,778, 13 Joseph 3,755, 14 Callum 3,517, 15 George 3,386, 16 Jake 3,353, 17 Alfie 3,194, 18 Luke 3,108,19 Matthew 3,043, 20 Ethan 3,020

    It's a classic example of bullshit statiistics, non-muslims choose from hundreds of different Christian names, Muslims usually choose Mohammed, surprise! Mohammed is apparently no2!
