It's of course a great name and maybe the best to name your Muslim boy, but it should be spelled Muhammad. These variations like Mohammed, Muhamad, Muhammet, Mehmet and so on, I don't like. The original name is the nicest one.
I don't like it. Too many M's, and it is the most common name in the world.
Mohammed is also Urdu, as an alternate transcription of Muhammad. It is used alongside Muhammad and Mohammad in Pakistan.

Scripts: محمد (Urdu)

Urdu Pronunciation: mo-HAM-mad.
I always hear the word hammer when people say this name.
It is considered an honour to have a Mohammed in the family for Muslims, and it is only stigmatized because of the ignorance surrounding Islam. I grew up in a mixed culture with many Muslim and Christian children and knew my fair share of Mohammed's playing along with Jameses and Johns.
A Muslim friend told me that in some Muslim countries, as many as a quarter of all boys are given the name Mohammed or some variant spelling. Considering many people from these countries immigrate to Europe, that could explain why Mohammed ranks so high on European popularity charts.
Mohammed Ribéry is the son of French professional footballer Franck Ribéry.
I heavily dislike this name, it's so plain and boring. I think it's probably because it's considered to be the most common name.
Considered to be the most common name, and I understand why that it is but I think it's unusual/weird to name your kid after a prophet. It seems as if they believe their child is "superior" in a way. The name is bland sounding, no offense to the prophet Mohammad.
This is the name of the current king of Morocco.
I don't care for this name. It's rather boring, and the stigma attached to the prophet Mohammed (and Islam in general) in the West would lead to racist bullying.
Mohammed is the most common (boys) name in Malmö, a city in Sweden. That is pretty wierd, since it's not a Swedish name at all. On the other hand, there are a lot of immigrants from middle-east countries in Malmö.
Mohammed Ali is a famous boxer. His original name was Cassius Clay.
The name comes from the last Prophet sent by Allah. His name was prophet Muhammad PBUH. He was born in Mecca and lived to be 63 years old. His first revelation was brought by the angel Gabriel and it continued. He had 9 wives and he made the incredible journey Hajj. It was the journey from Mecca to Medina. That is when the Muslim calender starts, the year of the Hijra. Prophet Muhammad PBUH died in Medina.
