Jared is the kind of name that sounds like it was invented in modern times yet goes back a long ways (according to the Hebrew Bible, Jared was a close descendant of Adam). The name has an edge to it and no celebrity embodies edgy (and quirky) better than actor Jared Leto. After an on-and-off relationship with the baby-name charts for decades, Jared became super-trendy in the 1980s and '90s.
