Another Baby Named for a Missile

Last week’s post on the name Fajr, inspired by the Fajr-5 rocket, reminded me of another baby named for an Iranian rocket.

This baby was born in Sidon, Lebanon, during the 36-day Israel–Hezbollah War (July 12 to August 14, 2006).

His parents, Mohammed al-Khaled and Kawkab al-Akli, named him Raad after the long-range Iranian missile Raad, which the Lebanon-based Shiite militant group Hezbullah was firing into Israel at the time.

The name was chosen “to honor the resistance, and (its leader) Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah,” said al-Khaled.

Raad means “thunder” in Persian.
