FIRST, let me say that there indeed is MEANING in a name……My daughter Jenaya, who was about 6 or 7 at the time actually named my son Jared – now when she said it, I was thinking wow, how did she know about this scripture because I never heard of Jared IN THE BIBLE at all. I knew that there used to be a television show named JARED but that is all.
However, as we were looking in the bible she found it and I was amazed, prayed about it and she said it is great to be the father of Enoch because God just took him mommy and never died! (which coming from a young child is indeed amazing right! )
