Ten Muslim names will be given name days in the Norwegian almanac. One of those names is Mohammad.

Until now, neither Ali, Fatima or Mohammad have had their own name days in Norway, but they soon will. From 2017, ten Arab and Muslim names are added to the calendar, which means that they get their own name days, reports NRK.

It's the Almanac Publishing House that owns and publishes the name day order in Norway, and they have long talked about including these names in the calendar.

- The name day order will be changed once every ten years. In cooperation with name researchers at the University of Oslo, we have arrived at a succession of names, says Hans Olav Hoff of the Almanac Publishing House.

But here is the twist they probably haven't thought about.

The custom of name day originated with the Christian calendar of saints: believers named after a saint would celebrate that saint's feast day, or in the Eastern Orthodox tradition, the day of a saint's death. In other words it's a purely Christian tradition.

Besides Mohammad, the names Aisha, Hassan, Omar, Fatima, Ali, Samira, Ahmed, Amina, and Yasmin are Muslim names that are now given a Christian name day in Norway.

Unless there is outrage as usual.
