Christians may wonder; "Is prophet MUHAMMAD's name mentioned in the Bible?"

The answer is YES, the final messenger's name is mentioned in The Holy Bible

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the 
Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16

Hebrew Pronunciation: 
"Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem."

Translated in English:
"His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem."

In the Hebrew language "im" is added for respect. Similarely "im" is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as "altogether lovely", but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet present.
