I have read that it is a name in its own right, from Celtic derivation meaning 'Strong warrior'.

A Celtic name meaning 'Strong warrior'?

This name is neither Celtic nor means anything of the sort; it is an atrocious blend of two names that are wonderful on their own in their undamaged form.

Jarlath is the Irish name you are probably thinking of; this is from

"St. Jarlath (born c. 550 AD) was noted for his piety and his ability as a teacher. In old age he decided to found a monastery where he could end his days. He asked one of his pupils, St. Breandan the Navigator, to drive his chariot east and when the chariot broke a wheel at Tuam in County Galway he took it as a sign that that was where he should end his journey, founding a church that became a great center of learning and art. The name is still popular in this part of Ireland."

Instead of only being a blend of the names Jared and Gareth (Seth is also a possibility, by the way), Jareth could also simply be a more creative spelling of Jared (and thus a variant spelling, one could say).
