I am struggling to think or find a boys name

bridgetsmum Sat 27-Apr-13 10:48:47

Hate it! Sorry.

My fave boys name is Declan xx

KittenofDoom Sat 27-Apr-13 10:59:19

I like it. One of the less common Biblical names, although I suspect it may be on the up.

Mrsfluff Sat 27-Apr-13 11:01:01

I love it!

I quite like it. I know 2, one adult (known as Jad) & a child.

I like it and know one, known as Jed.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 27-Apr-13 11:34:49

I think of Toadie from Neighbours.

I like it. I know a Jared. Good strong name

BNmum Sat 27-Apr-13 16:35:38

I'm with you AnneEyhtMeyer, it makes me think of Toadie from neighbours

Hate it, sorry - but I used to teach an evil one.

KittenofDoom Sat 27-Apr-13 19:25:34

Never watched Neighbours, so I don't know who or what Toadie is, nor what it has to do with Jared.

ChasingStaplers Sat 27-Apr-13 19:27:57

I like it.

Also know a little boy called Jaren.

chattychattyboomba Sat 27-Apr-13 19:29:39

Really hate it.

usualsuspect Sat 27-Apr-13 19:36:49

I love it.

It's one of my favorite boys names.

ja9 Sat 27-Apr-13 19:44:28

I'm not sure what I think of it? Have only known one Jared, about 10 years older than me. V nice man. Where does it appear in the bible?

I don't think I love it...but could grow it. It's non-offensive in how it sounds..(!)

I don't think I like it particularly.

ClaraOswinOswald Sun 28-Apr-13 18:02:38

I was in school with a Jared and then there was David Bowie in Labyrinth followed by Toadie in Neighbours- the only 3 I have ever heard of.

I really like the name, it's unusual without being too out-there.

JoInScotland Sun 28-Apr-13 22:22:48

I went to school with loads of Jareds! Must have been something in the water of the Pacific Northwest 40 years ago....

OkayHazel Sun 28-Apr-13 23:02:29

I know a Jared from York. Sister is Abigail. Don't love or hate either name tbh.

hellokitty124 Mon 29-Apr-13 07:21:05

I dislike it, sorry.

squoosh Mon 29-Apr-13 11:50:09

Strongly dislike.

DalaHorse Mon 29-Apr-13 12:02:43

Naughty boy's name. It's the modern version of Darren (to me). Sorry!

bananaramma Mon 29-Apr-13 13:52:21

Really don't like it at all.

rachel234 Mon 29-Apr-13 14:01:32

I think I like it.

Ruby bit bitchy of you to put the boy's surname in your post, especially as it's quite an unusual one.

rubylovescheese Mon 29-Apr-13 15:34:06

well he was 5. no doubt he is now someone's dh. will ask for it to be removed.

slhilly Mon 29-Apr-13 15:38:40

It's a Hebrew name meaning "he who descended" (from the root yud resh daled, meaning descent). I like it.

squoosh Mon 29-Apr-13 15:39:47

It just sounds so clunky, as if the two syllables don't match in any way.

Snowflakepie Tue 30-Apr-13 22:55:45

There's one in DDs preschool who keeps scratching and hurting her. So to me it is a nasty, vicious bully name. Sorry. Probably there are some nice ones about too.

Mellymog Wed 01-May-13 09:07:16

i think it has chav potential, sorry.

MoonHare Wed 01-May-13 13:43:31

Jared Leto. My So Called Life.

I like it.

thermalsinapril Wed 01-May-13 16:03:21
