I have a few to add. Aside from their arabic origin, Reza means assent or consent, Temiz means clean, Sadik means faithful or loyal in Turkish. I don't know the details about Arabic meaning but in Turkish, Sadik does not mean friend, anyhow. Friend is "arkadaş" or "dost" in Turkish. Yes, Süleyman is a very common fist name in Turkey and it originates from Arabic name for King/Prophet Solomon. Also name of an Ottoman Sultan, as mentioned before.

At the Hand That Feeds, while talking to Zoe, Reza uses the word "Tamam", which means okay in Turkish. So most probably he is Turkish too, like Sully.

 

Reza Temiz could also be Azerbaijani (Azeri Turk) since Reza is the form of Rıza mostly used in Azerbaijan. In Turkey the form Rıza is used.
