Default Personal Names in Puzzles

I'm glad to see the site makes an effort to use names from different cultures in the puzzles - I have noticed, however, that Muslim and Arab names are strangely absent. It would be nice to see the creators of the puzzles make an effort to include some Arab and Muslim names. Has anyone else noticed missing cultures?

Default Mohammed

Hi,
Off the top of my head, Mohammed is a Muslim name that is used in the puzzles. There are also Middle East and Muslim countries used. Clearly, an effort has been made. However, I believe it has more to do with trying to confuse and make the puzzles more challenging...
