"The name Muhammad(PBUH) meaning lots for me. This is the name which is everything for me as a Muslim." Mar. 9, 2020:
"This name is beautiful and has such a strong background. It is important to give a child a name with strength and meaning. Something to live up to and cherish. I have named my son this and we chose to spell it Muhammad." Mar. 19, 2014:
"My husband's name is Mohammed. It means the "Praised One" and is of Arabic origin. He is a strong man and a great father. The spellings of his name is irrelavent, what's important is that he lives up to his name on a daily basis." Apr. 26, 2008:
"Mohammad pronounced with its 'h' on a deep note cannot be described as anything less than magnificent; it is magnanimous in its lettering and magnificent in pronouncing; not to miss that it is magnetic in its sound! If names could mesmerize then Mohammad would be heading the list..." Jun. 26, 2005:

"Why would somebody burden their child with this name?" Jan. 28, 2009:
"Muhammad, Mohammed - I don't know. I'm no muslim so the name has no special meaning to me... and it doesn't sound that good to me at all." Mar. 9, 2007:
"It looks and sounds horrible. No way would I burden a child with this name... but that's probably to do with that fact that I'm not muslim and I suppose if Mohammed wasn't "Allah's prophet", most muslims wouldn't call their sons that, either..." Jan. 31, 2007:
