Well not a quiz more factual actually.

Simply click on the BBC link, scroll down a bit and put in your first name.

I think it was last year (maybe the year before) that there was some sort of PC storm when it was revealed that Muhammad (spelt in its various forms) was already the most popular name for a baby boy.

I don't doubt it is the same this year too.

Edit - it was last year -

An official list of the most popular baby names in England and Wales has sparked fresh debate over whether Mohamed – with all its spelling variations - is the most common boys’ name.
It appears with several spelling variations on the Office for National Statistics’ ranking for 2015, which puts Oliver, Jack and Harry at the top, with Amelia, Olivia and Emily for girls.
Muhammad appears at number 12, followed by Mohammed at 29, Mohammad in 68th place and Muhammed coming in at 121.

When the spellings are combined, it was used 7,570 times – outstripping the 6,941 babies named Oliver on their birth certificates.
