Muhammad is the most popular baby boys' name in the U.K.

The website BabyCentre U.K. has revealed that, including alternate spellings, Muhammad is the top boys' name in 2014.

Muhammad, which is up 27 places from its spot last year, is followed by Oliver and Jack on the list. Arabic names are on the rise, with Omar, Ali, and Ibrahim appearing in the top 100 boys' names.

While celebrity-inspired names are quite popular, royal names like George were less popular this year than in the past.

"Kate and William have a lot of attention, and parents don't want to always be asked if they named their baby after Prince George," Sarah Redshaw, managing editor of BabyCentre, told The Times.
