    I've seen Ryker/Riker as a boy name a couple of times in the last year.

    Tonight I was watching a commercial for an upcoming Dancing with the Stars and saw there's some kid actor named Riker.

    one of. y co-workers was telling me a story from a few years ago that this Asian couple who spoke very little English had just had her baby girl and my friend wrote "female" on the baby bracelet and the dad was so surprised and grateful that we had named his daughter "female"and that he loved the name....I wonder if someone later explained it to them.....

    Jihad really means to strive, to put forth your best effort towards something. It's an internal/spiritual concept. War is a secondary meaning of the word. Unfortunately, most people only know the secondary meaning and don't understand it's true meaning.

    Yes, I was enlightened by a fellow nurse who was named Jihad. He explained it quite well to me. Unfortunately, there were some patients (parents) that didn't get the opportunity for this explanation, or weren't open to it.
