I always think about Tariq from "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini when I think of this name.

From this very website: "Tariq Means "he who pounds at the door" in Arabic. This is the Arabic name of the morning star. Tariq ibn Ziyad was the Islamic general who conquered Spain for the Umayyad Caliphate in the 8th century." Until the end of Moorish Spain and the Reconquista (711-1492), the name Tariq would be common. From the 1500s - 1700s Spain owned the Netherlands. That (in my theory) is how the Arabic name Tariq was the origin for the name Derek in the Low Countries and then on to England.
This guy at my school is named Tarik. He told me he was Swiss which is strange since his first and last name are Arabic. Maybe he's Islamic but that's doubtful since his middle name is Christian. His full name means "the bright door-pounder who bore Christ" or "The bright morning star who bore Christ". I think his name is unique and also has a great meaning.
I know a boy called Tareq. I think his name is a variant of Tariq.
Gibraltar was named for the Islamic leader who invaded the Iberian penninsula in 711, the place name meaning "Tariq's Mountain."
Due to the meaning of this name, a person called Tariq would probably be fond of knock knock jokes.
