The name of the 7th-century prophet who founded Islam, Muhammad is extremely popular within Muslim communities around the world. When the late, great American boxer Cassius Clay joined the Nation of Islam in 1964, he changed his name to Muhammad Ali. Though there are many ways to spell it (Mohammed, Mohamed, Muhamad), this spelling is the most highly ranked in the US. Its meaning, “praiseworthy," is a testament to the name's power and strength.
