As I’ve told you on this site, America’s Muslim population doubled–largely through immigration–since 9/11. 40% of Muslims now in America emigrated here since 9/11. And of those 40%, 75% arrived during the Bush Administration, with an additional 25% under Barack Obama. Now, the damage is irreparable, and Mohammed is now among the most popular boys’ names in Minnesotastan . . . or is it MinneSomalia?
For the first time, Mohamed has made the list of the state’s most popular baby boy names, in at No. 98. The updated list, released Tuesday by the U.S. Social Security Administration, ranks Minnesota’s top 100 baby names for boys and girls.
The name, in its several variations, is one of the most popular worldwide for Muslim parents. It has risen on Minnesota’s list as the state’s population has rapidly changed. From 2000 to 2010, the number of residents of color grew 55 percent, and Minnesota’s fast-growing Somali population is the largest in the United States.
A decade from now, look for it to become the MOST popular boys’ name in Minnesota, just like it is in London.
