First Name : Jihad
"Jihad" : aka "Struggle". From Wikipedia : "In Modern Standard Arabic, jihad is one of the correct terms for a struggle for any cause, violent or not, religious or secular (though kifa is also used). For instance, Mahatma Gandhi’s peaceful "satyagraha" struggle for Indian independence is also called a "jihad" in Modern Standard Arabic (as well as many other dialects of Arabic) ; the terminology is also applied to the fight for women’s liberation."
Wikipedia also mentions that modern Muslim scholar Mahmoud Ayoub importantly states that "The goal of true jihad is to attain a harmony between islam (submission), iman (faith), and ihsan (righteous living)." Learn more about ’Peaceful Jihad’ here.

Origins of Family Surname : Abou-Georgi or Abu-Georgi
Abou-Georgi or Abu-Georgi is a Lebanese (Lebanon) and/or Palestinian (Palestine) family surname, and therefore Arabic. It has ties to both the Ibrahim Clan, and the Jiries Clan. Reports also indicate that relatives with the last name "Abou-Georgi" or "Abu-Georgi" are direct decedents of the Arabic family tree of surname Maloof, and Bataeh.
It can be argued that the Abou-Georgi or Abu-Georgi families can be traced back to two clans which are decedents of the orginal Father (or Abou/Abu in Arabic), Ibrahim Bin Rashed Bin Saqqer El-Haddadeen (of the Ibrahim Clan), and the original Father (or Abou/Abu in Arabic), IbrahimRashed El-Haddaddeen (of the Jiries Clan), respectively.
Clan information is surmised from research done by from two separate books. In the book "Ibrahim Clan" by John Aziz Mogannam, the family surname, "Abu Georgi" (or Abou-Georgi) is mentioned in the family tree three times, (pages 41, 752, 706). In this research the author also states that the Khalil Bataeh family branch is "also known as the Abu Georgi Family". In the book "Jiries Clan" by John Mogannam & Paul Salah, the family surname, "Abu Georgi" (or Abou-Georgi) is mentioned at least twice (pages 567, 873).
As a point of interest, it should be noted that many original Arabic surnames such as Maloof or Bataeh were changed to Abou-Georgi or Abu-Georgi because of poor documentation and errors understandably created during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. The surname "Abu-Georgi" and "Abou-Georgi" have been traced back to the village of Al-Bassa in Palestine. It was depopulated due to the Palestine War of 1947-1949, and the subsequent exodus of Palestinians & Lebanese displaced by Israel.
