Ooh, love the meaning: essence, ink. Wow!
There are actually several ways to write this name, with all being accepted in the Chechen language. For example, a name may be written in various different ways depending on the source you read, such as the case with the name 'Arbi', which can be written either as "Ӏаьрби" (with the palochka) or "Арби" (standard Russian). Some articles use Russified spellings, while others maintain the traditional Chechen spellings. "Джохар" is the standard Russian spelling adopted by many modern Chechen texts, though the spelling "ЖовхӀар" with the palochka (Ӏ) is more traditional in native Chechen.

I think Chechen names are very unique, and this name and Zelimkhan have always stood out to me. :3.
The meaning behind this name is so beautiful I am going to name my baby boy this.
I notice this name wasn't added to the database until after the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15th, 2013, which is unfortunate because it will now always be associated with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two Chechen brothers charged with perpetuating the event. However, prior to its brutal notoriety, former Soviet Air Force general and Chechen leader Dzhokhar Dudayev was a famous bearer, as well.
