All my life I've been calling my father that nickname. Actually, everybody is calling him that - it's a short for Jarosław. And to be honest every Jarosław I know (personally or not) is called that nickname. As he - my father - is half American (but has truly Slavic name, I know), I came up with Jared for him to use instead of Jarek - but so far with no success ;)
