What's in a name?

What's in a name? Sometimes plenty. Here is an article out of England about most popular baby names. Why is it worth noting?
Mohammed, and its most common alternative spelling Muhammad, are now more popular babies' names in England and Wales than George, reflecting the diverse ethnic mix of the population. The Office for National Statistics said there were 2,833 baby boys called Mohammed in 2006.
That should be alarming to any Brits not inclined to kneel facing Mecca five times a day.

To say "Mohammed" more popular than "George" is a bit misleading. Isn't it something like 70% of Muslims name their boys "Mohammed"? On the other hand, "George" while most popular English name, is probably used less than 2% of the time for English, I'm guessing?
