These images show the Islamisation of France as revealed by the first names given to babies. The number at the top of each unit is the number of the département (the local administrative region). The number below is the percentage of baby names that seem Islamic. A cautious approach was taken when deciding whether a name was Islamic or not: if there was any ambiguity, it was not included in the figures. Thus, the actual rate of islamisation is probably higher than is revealed by these figures. Nationally, around 18% of babies in France are now being given Islamic forenames.
