    There is a physician named Jihad (first name) at a hospital here.

    The hospital is known for its billboards showing a patient on one side, and the physician who impacted their health on the other. I couldn't believe it the day I was driving and saw that they had made a billboard with him, including his full name plastered across it.
    Maybe trying to get the message across that some Jihads aren't bad for you? Love to know what his parents had in mind for him, though.

    It has bad connotations in light of events in the last decade or so, but all "jihad" means is "struggle." I can't imagine naming my kid "struggle" regardless of the language, but maybe his poor mom had a hard pregnancy or something.

    I'm in nursing school and during my NICU rotation there was a little boy named "Sincere."

    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.

    So what I thought was an odd tribute to a long out of fashion Star Trek character is probably more like an obsession with a teen star.

    either way. . .
