Robert dictionary.gifmasc. proper name, from O.N.Fr. form of O.H.G. Hrodberht, lit. "bright with glory," from hrod- "fame, glory" + -berht "bright." John dictionary.gifmasc. proper name, c.1160, from M.L. Johannes, from L.L. Joannes, from Gk. Ioannes, from Heb. Yohanan (in full y'hohanan) lit. "Jehovah has favored," from hanan "he was gracious." As the name of John the Baptist and John the Evangelist, it was one of the most common Christian given names, and in England by early 14c. it rivaled William in popularity. O.Fr. form was Jean, but in England its variants Johan, Jehan yielded Jan, Jen (cf. surname Jensen). Welsh form was Ieuan, (see Evan), but Ioan was adopted for the Welsh Authorized Version of the Bible, hence frequency of Jones as a Welsh surname. Feminine form was Joan, Latinized as Johanna. Colloquial John Hancock "signature" (1903, sometimes, through some unexplainable error, John Henry) is from the signer of the Declaration of Independence, either from his signing first or most prominently. The family name is attested from 1276 in Yorkshire, a dim. (see cock) of Hann, a very common given name in 13c. Yorkshire as a pet name for Henry or John. Johnny-come-lately first attested 1839. Bernard dictionary.gifman's proper name, from Ger. Bernhard, lit. "bold as a bear," from O.H.G. bero "bear" + harti "hard, bold." yes, these are all my names.

Nothing wrong with the name Jared. I'm probably the only one with my name on these forums too, but that would really only be because such a small percentage of the members are female :p

I don't think you are, I'm pretty sure I've seen another who was named that, tho it was spelled slightly different.

I'm too lazy to look far into my name, although i think it's similar to the meaning of Jacob, but my middle name, Durand, is a french name, after some leader Durant, it means, enduring i think.
