Mohamed Now One of the Most Popular Boy Names in Minnesota
Burnsville Patch ^ | April 11, 2013 | Kevira Voegele

Mohamed has made the list of most popular baby boy names in Minnesota, according to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Mohamed was the 98th most popular boy's name in 2011 in the state. The SSA says Minnesota parents named 73 boys after the founder of Islam in that year.

This is the first time the name has appeared on the list the SSA releases each year.

Are you surprised Mohamed is now one of the 100 most popular boys names? Are you surprised it wasn't on the top 100 list prior to 2011?

Mohamed's place on the list is not surprising considering some recent statistics.

"The name, in its several variations, is one of the most popular worldwide for Muslim parents," according to the Star Tribune. "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."

There are 317 people who practice Islam per 100,000 in Minnesota, according to a 2010 study by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies (ASARB). That means the state has the 18th largest Muslim population in the United States and the District of Columbia, behind nearby Illinois (first) and Michigan (sixth).

The population of Minnesota is approximately 5.38 million, according to the latest census estimate. The Muslim population in the state could range from "20,000 to 130,000," according to a story by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

The most popular names for boys in 2011 in Minnesota were Mason, William and Jacob. The most popular girls names in that year were Olivia, Sophia and Emma.

Up until recently, Michigan was the hub of Muslim immigrants. But, Minnesota?!

Minnesotans better “get busy” or they’re going to be demographically overwhelmed.

High birthrate. Willingness to take welfare money. Don’t give a $h!t attitude about US laws and customs. Their formula seems to be working for them.

New census data: Minnesota Somali population grows

MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota’s Somali population is still the largest in the United States, according to new census data released early Thursday that raised the number of people of Somali ancestry in the state to more than 32,000.

The new estimate is based on American Community Surveys taken by the bureau from 2008-2010 and updates last year’s estimate of nearly 27,000 Somalis in the state. Because the estimates are derived from surveys, they include a margin of error, which means the census calculates the population could be as high as 36,000 or as low as 29,000.

“Up until recently, Michigan was the hub of Muslim immigrants. But, Minnesota?! “

Yes. Back in the 90’s our Governor, Arne Carlson thought it was a wonderful Idea to accept Federal money in exchange for offering a nice place to live to the Somali refuges. There is a very large community of them in the metro area.

“Mohamed Now One of the Most Popular Boy Names in Minnesota”

I’ll pass on Moe Ham Head.

I much prefer names like Charles the Hammer Martel and Vlad the Impaler.

Yep - Vlad was always one of my favorites. He actually grew up to be a very successful Impaler. Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Minnesota used to be known for its lakes and pines. Now it is known for its Somalis.
