    Mohammed is rapidly becoming one of the most popular names in Germany, figures show

    Jonas and Maximilian may soon have to step aside. The name Mohammed is fast-becoming one of the most popular baby boy names in Germany. 
    Since Angela Merkel threw open the borders in 2015, more than a million migrants have arrived in the country.
    This population growth has been a factor in the Arabic name’s rapid rise. In less than a decade, it has already shot from 97th place to 26th, Breibart reported.
    Within three years, Mohammed could rank in the top ten, according to the head of the Society for German Language.
