The name غسان sounds not arab mainstream, it is very much targeted toward Lebanese

Thanks for mentioning this. In the Wiki list for this name, the first several are Lebanese, although then it includes some Palestinians. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghassan_(given_name)

What's the difference between جيد and طيب?

Although similar 'جيد' is more positive, 'طيب' translates roughly to okay.
