  1. His spiritual grandfather, a dear mentor and beloved soul for both of us, chose this name and so we went along with it.

    i lobe everything about the name, its meaning, its popularity, its beauty, the great people who carried this name in the past

    no

  2. The name Muhammad has a lot of religious significance to it, and we had prayed about our son’s name and couldn’t think of anything but Muhammad. I know a couple of adult Muhammads, but only one other baby named Muhammad and he lives really far away hahaha and there aren’t any kids in our community named Muhammad – so I feel like our son’s name is unique in the community for his age group.

  3. If you name kids after intellectual individuals
