    Ryker? Yeah Or Nah?

    Do you like the name Ryker?

    Oh my, no. It's really not pleasant-sounding. And there is the obvious, unfortunate association of Ryker's Island - the prison in New York City.

    I think Ryker's Island. To compound the already violent association, Ryker also sounds like a mash-up of rifle and striker.

    As a Star Trek fan, Ryker obviously has that association for me. I like it, but in all honesty, I would never us it. It sounds trendy, and frankly like it's trying too hard to be cool. I'm sorry if that stings! Not meaning to offend, but that is my honest opinion.

    I don't like it, sorry. I agree with PP that it sounds like yet another made up/trendy/wannabe cool sort of name.
