Is there a traditional or common greeting for Ramadan?

People who celebrate Christmas routinely wish each other "Merry Christmas". At Hanukkah we say "Happy Hanukkah," etc. Do Moslems have a greeting for Ramadan? Do they wish each other "Happy Ramadan" or "Joyous Ramadan" or something similar?

Here are two that I found after a quick Google search:

  • Ramadan Kareem (Noble Ramadan)
  • Ramadan Mubarak (Blessed Ramadan)
