My first thought is Commander William T. even if that Riker is spelt differently.

Not necessarily a good or bad thing, but this is the same pronunciation as Riker's Island, the main jail complex for New York city. My understanding is that the island was named for the original owner's of the island, whose last name was some form of Riker/Ryker.

I first encountered this as the name of a trashy young mother's baby, and I immediately hated it. It sounds so ugly, trendy, and fake. It's not a real name!

Can't get past the Rikers Island association, which effectively rules out any possibility of my liking this name.

First thing I think of is Riker's Island (which is hardcore, even for a prison). So... yeah, that renders Ryker unusable as a name for me.

I think the name Ryker is awesome, cute and modern! I LOVE this name! :D.

Horrible. Sounds incredibly tacky. Something someone really trashy would name their son.

My name is Ryker and I'm a girl. I LOVE my name and honestly always have. Almost everyone I've ever met has complemented it. No, I'm not a tacky, trashy person. And neither is my mom. Thank you SO much for your sweet comments though! (that was sarcasm)

Ryker's Island is one of the most notorious, high-security prisons in the United States. So uh...
