What Are Some Common Islamic Names for Boys?

Muhammad, Omar, Ahmed, Adam, Ali, Yusuf, Abdul Rahman, Abdullah, Yasin and Hamza are ten of the most popular Muslim names, according to BabyCenter. Of these, Muhammad is by far the most popular.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of these names are the names of figures from the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam. For example, Muhammad is the main prophet of God, Omar and Ali were important figures in the religion's early history and Adam was the first human. Abdul Rahman and Abdullah are names that mean "servant of the Merciful" and "servant of God," respectively.
