Who named Jihadi John?

Is it just me, or did anyone else take note of the fact that they gave Jihadi John a "Christian" name?

I know it was catchy, but I wonder if it wasn't done, deliberately. Why didn't the press name him Jihadi Jamil, or something like that.

Just sayin'

    It was my understanding is that because of his British accent and as a nod to one of the "Four Lads; John, Ringo, Paul, and George. Dumb I know, but was what I heard.

      I figured it was just another way at protecting moderate Muslims from some imagined persecution or, better yet, a poor attempt at disguising the Islamic ties to these heinous acts.
      But, then, I do tend to be a bit of a conspiracy theorist, at times .
