Why do I find this depressing....

Of 62,000 names different names for babies born in Britain.... 
While Amelia and Oliver were the favourite names nationally, Muhammad topped boys’ names in London.
And when spelling alternatives including Mohammed, Muhamad and Muhammet were combined, the traditionally Muslim name even overhauled Oliver as the national favourite boys’ name.

The data, released by the Office of National Statistics, revealed that 6,649 boys born in 2014 were called Oliver, with 5,800 were named Jack.

There were also 3,588 Muhammads, 2,536 Mohammeds and 1,116 Mohammads – a total of 7,240 babies.
As my grandmother might have said .............'Sigh!!!!!"
