Recently, I became interested with celebrating "Name Days". I searched the net if my name, Jared, is also a name of a saint. I only found one source (saints.sqpn.com/)saying that there is indeed one, St. Jared the Patriarch, from Genesis 5.
I do know that certain biblical figures are considered as saints however, I do not know which ones. Jared the Patriarch is listed in the said website as a saint however, his father ?] Mahalalel is not listed as one (again in said website).
I also looked for Jared the Patriarch's entry in the Roman Martyrology (under the feast day indicated in the website) but I did not find his name. So, is he considered a saint?
May you please enlighten me on this? Thanks!
