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"...
