Popular Names in Dubai – Mohammed, Mariam

Here are two recent sets of name rankings out of the United Arab Emirates.

In mid-2013, the UAE’s Ministry of Health released “year to date” baby name rankings topped by Mariam/Fatima and Mohammed:

2. Fatima (tie)
3. Aiysha
4. Sara
1. Mohammed
2. Abdullah
3. Ahmed
4. Ali
5. Khalid
6. Saeed

8. Rashid

Earlier this month, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) of Dubai — one of the 7 emirates in the UAE — released lists of popular girl names and boy names according to a survey of school registration records. I’m not sure what age range the records covered, but these lists were also topped by Maryam and Mohammed:

Girl Names Boy Names
1. Maryam
2. Sara/Sarah
3. Fatima/Fatma
4. Ayesha
5. Noor
1. Mohammed
2. Ali
3. Omar
4. Ahmed/Ahmad
5. Abdulla/Abdullah

One Dubai student named Mohammed was quoted as saying, “It is common to see four or five students share Mohammed as their first name in a class of 25 to 30 students. We usually get called by our second name.”

(I wonder where Hamad fell on these lists…)
