Jared in Wikipedia
is a proper name that is a very common first name (in various
Western countries) of Biblical derivation, etymologically from
the Hebrew language, and one of the names by which Moses was
known. Translated it means "descent" derived from Miriam who
had "descended to the Nile" to find out what happened to her
brother. In the Hebrew it is written ירד / יֶרֶד / יָרֶד,
pronounced yĕ\yā́-rĕḏ. When transliterated into the English
language, variations include Jared / Jarred / Jarrad / Jaryd /
Jarod / Jered /Jeredd /Jeryd / Jerad / Jerrad / Jurd / Jerid
(among other variations), being generally pronounced as dʒĕ-
rĕd\rəd; according to classic Biblical pronunciation (denoted
by syllabic stress accenting) it can be rendered dʒā\dʒē-rĕd.
The name can be phonetically transcribed from Hebrew to
English as Yared(h) / Yered(h) / Yored (h).
Jared is a typical Hebrew name that is very common across the
Western world. The dead sea scrolls also have records of the
name "Yah-rod" meaning "the perpetual leader"...
