Comments for the name Muhammad


Comments for MUHAMMAD:

Used by Muslims. Non-Muslims don't use this name or the names that derive from it. The Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was sent to all mankind as the seal of all prophets.

In Malaysia it's MOHD, MUHD, MOHAMAD, MAT, MAD.

Muhammad Ali was and still is a very famous boxer.

It would probably be rather controversial now, with all the predjudices against the name. That aside, I don't know if I would want to name my kid one of the most common names in the world without having an alternative or middle name lined up.

It's used in Saudi Arabia to address a person whose name someone doesn't know. "By the best of names". Though I think partly also because it's so common increasing the chances of a correct assumption.

Muhammad is a famous bearer, of course! Okay, how can people hate this name? It's Muhammad we're talking about here.

I agree Katie. People are just racist pigs, and why would it be wrong for someone to name their kid Muhammad if they're not Muslim? It's just a name, it's like saying if you're not Jewish or Christian you can't name your kid Elijah! I like this name.

It's more like a non-Christian naming his or her child Jesus. (Assuming we're in an English-speaking country, where the Spanish name Jesus (hey-zeus) isn't common.) To say that Muhammad was considerably more influential to Islam than Elijah was to Judaism or especially Christianity would be an incredible understatement. To name your child after the founder of a religion to which you don't subscribe, simply because you think the name sounds nice, strikes me as being quite disrespectful and ignorant.

Muhammad is distantly related to the name Michael. It's a very common name, and there are plenty of non-Muslims who have this name.

The most popular name in the world, eh? Well, I believe it. No offence to any Muslims, but although I usually love Arabic names, "Muhammed" sounds rather bland. The Turkish form, "Mehmed" or "Mehmet" is nice, though, and plus your son won't have to endure the Prophet/Muhammed Ali jokes.

I always think of Muhammad Amin al-Husayni. The cruel mufti of Jerusalem after World War I.

This name is waaaay too popular. It gets kind of tricky to come up with distictions when you are a teacher at a Muslim school and 3 out of 10 of your students are named Muhamad or some varied spelling of it. I had to use nicknames so when I called for one of them they wouldn't all come to me! =}

Gorgeous name. The double M sound in the middle really makes you speak it as if you love it. Absolutely beautiful.

Muhammad Wilkerson is an American football player.

As we Muslims believe Prophet Muhammad wasn't the founder of Islam - rather it is the religion God made for people through history of humanity - I believe it would be more accurate to say that the name Muhammad is the name of the Islam prophet born in the 7th century.

I was actually afraid to look on this page because I was expecting to see several racist and Islamophobic comments by retards. I guess the Moderators removed them for which I am glad.
I have a Pakistani friend with this name, I like it despite not being muslim. I prefer the Turkish Mehmet more, though.

@Jason Malcolm Same! I was expecting to see some rude comments here- thank goodness there's none. ^__^ I really like the name Muhammad and it has a great meaning. I agree, the Turkish name 'Mehmet' is rather lovely too. (:
