Well, that’s a surprise. I was expecting Alistair.

Britain’s most popular baby names have been released, and Jack, the reigning champ for 14 years, has been replaced this year by Mohammed, reports the AFP.

The name, a reference to the Muslim prophet, was denied the top spot due to a plethora of spellings listed separately, including “Muhammad and Mohammad,” said the Daily Mail. However, the disparate spellings taken together formed the largest group, with 7,549 newborns given the name last year. The official top spot went to Oliver, with 7,364 newborns. The most popular girl’s name was Olivia. The lists were compiled by Britain’s Office of National Statistics.

Oliver, Jack, Harry and Alfie brought up the rear.
