    The Austrian daily Kronen Zeitung announced the top 2017 male baby names on Friday, with “Muhammed” moving up into third place, following traditional boys’ names of “Alexander” and “Maximilian”.

    The most common baby names are taken as a measure of cultural change, the newspaper said.

    Authorities in Vienna have deliberately covered up the fact that Mohammad has been in the top five most popular baby names in the city since at least 2014, Austria’s major newspaper claimed.

    The official list of the top ten most popular names for newborn boys published by the Vienna City Council on its website does not mention the Muslim name.

    The different spellings of the same name were grouped together for data purposes. Thus Muhamed, Muhammet, Mohamad, Muhammad and Muhammad were all considered the same name, as were Elias, Elijah and Eliyas.

    For girls’ names, Sophia, Sara and Anna were the favouritesr, according to data released by the evaluation of Municipal Department 23.

    In 1968, the most common girls’ names were Sabine, Claudia and Petra, and the most common boys’ names were Thomas, Andreas and Christian.

    Then followed, Franz, Peter and Karl topping the list of boys’ names, while Christine, Brigitte and Elisabeth were the most popular girls’ names.

    In Austria, the name is a reminder of the clash between the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Turks. The Battle of Vienna, between the allied Christian forces and 90 000 Islamic invaders – waged on September 11 1683 – marked the turning point in Europe’s 300-year struggle against Islam.

    In September 2016, the Catholic Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, warned of the coming conquest of Europe: “Europe is on the verge of forfeiting its Christian heritage.”

    Schönborn added that this loss was “not only economic”, but above all human and religious. “Will there be an Islamic conquest of Europe?” the Cardinal asked during a homily in Saint Stephen’s cathedral. “Many Muslims want that and say: ‘Europe is finished.'”

    In Great Britain, “Muhammad” has already topped the list of names for newborn baby boys in England and Wales every year since 2011. Before reaching number one on a national level, the name also topped the list of most popular names for boys in London.
