  • "My son's name is Ryker. We didn't have a boy name picked out because dr was 100% sure we were having a girl. He named himself. We tried 3 or 4 names several times and he looked at me everytime I said Ryker. Never reacted to the other names. Love my Ryker Dale!" Jun. 5, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I also named my son who was born in 2001 Ryker. I just love it. It's a strong, cool name. I have two girls as well, and wanted names that would go along with his, so I have a girl named Sailor and one named Piper. 🤗" Apr. 29, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "FYI Ryker is actually a Dutch name. My parents are from holland so I know this. Riker's island has nothing to do with the name and only ignorant people would think of such a stupid comparison." Feb. 23, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son's name (born in 2002) is Ryker, named after Commander William T. Riker of the Starship Enterprise. Sounds silly at first, but it's a name that invokes feelings of power, intelligence, as well as compassion. It's a name that is going to help this kid become something truly great in this world. One who will accomplish great things. You will hear of him again someday." Sep. 11, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my 1 year old boys name as well. We got the idea by shortening the name Stryker. We usually hear it is a "strong" name and people like it. Some people have asked us "Like the guy from Star Trek"? We live on the west coast so not too many Riker's Island comments, but there have been a few. And there have been a few people mistaking it for Ryder and Wrecker. Bur we still love it!" Mar. 1, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son's name is Ryker Ethan, and we get compliments all the time! It's unique without being too weird!" May. 8, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son Ryker Glenn (middle after my father) in 2007 and we get so many compliments on his name. It fits him to a "t"... its strong and energetic and he will stand out from all the Hunter's and Connor's that are so prevalent now!" Jan. 11, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son Ryker in 2001. Not after a prison. Anyone who would think that, shouldn't think. And the spelling for Riker's Island is obviously different than the name we've chosen. We've chosen it because it was unique. Everybody likes it and pronounces it the way it's spelled. So I'd say THUMBS UP TO RYKER!" Oct. 29, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is my 1 year old boys name. Most people know how to say it and some ask how to spell it when they hear it. Most people say they really like it." Jul. 6, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son Ryker was born in 1989. You say it just like it?s written. No one has ever mispronounced it. Everyone he has come in contact with throughout his life thinks it?s a cool name. He?s an Awesome young man." Oct. 31, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I do not like it. Another stupid name. Why do parents give their kids such stupid names? They want them to stand out. But now its just a bunch of kids with really bad names." Jul. 19, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am changing my son's name, whose is currently named after his father and is a "Junior." We really do not like that people call him Junior, so much so that we are changing his name. We have been going round and round and finally settled on Ryker. Ryker is hands down the best name I have come up with - not common at all, very unique but still simple. It's all very strong. Ryker it is." May. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate
