Riley MN starting with J

Hey! I’m look for a middle name for myself, first name [name_u]Riley[/name_u]. I had the idea to make the first initial J so I can goby RJ, but i can’t come up with any ideas! I would prefer something without strong religious connotations. Gender neutral, preferably masc-leaning. Bonus points if it has a nature meaning &/or has [name_m]German[/name_m], [name_m]Dutch[/name_m], or similar roots, but that’s not absolutely necessary

I really, really like Jamison/Jameson but it’s too close to a family member’s name. [name_u]Jupiter[/name_u] is nice but is it too out-there?

TIA! -rey :]

I think [name_u]Jupiter[/name_u] is spot-on for a ton of recent trends, and as it would be a middle for [name_u]Riley[/name_u], which is a semi-trendy name itself, it helps balance out the common coolness of [name_u]Riley[/name_u] with something unexpected but familiar. And [name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Jupiter[/name_u] RJ is just cool in general.

A few other J ideas to go with [name_u]Riley[/name_u]:
[name_u]Jax[/name_u] / [name_m]Jaxton[/name_m] / [name_m]Jaxon[/name_m]
[name_u]Jace[/name_u] / [name_m]Jacen[/name_m]
[name_m]Jurian[/name_m] (means farmer, relating to [name_u]George[/name_u] in case thats a mark for or against it)
[name_m]Justus[/name_m] / [name_m]Justin[/name_m] / [name_m]Justinian[/name_m]
[name_u]Jensen[/name_u] (similar to Jameson)
Jepson (similar to Jameson)
[name_m]Juddson[/name_m] / [name_m]Judson[/name_m] (similar to Jameson)
[name_m]Jetson[/name_m] (too The Jetsons?)
[name_m]Jarvis[/name_m] (very German)
[name_m]Jove[/name_m] (another name for Jupiter)
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] / [name_u]Julien[/name_u] / [name_m]Julius[/name_m] / [name_u]Jules[/name_u]
[name_m]Jacinto[/name_m] / Jacintan / Jacinthan (maybe too out there, but does mean hyacinth)

Well, I love how punchy [name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Jack[/name_u] sounds.
Here’s some other ideas:

[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_m]Joriel[/name_m]
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Jem[/name_u]
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Jett[/name_u]
[name_u]Riley[/name_u] [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]

I like the spelling [name_m]Jaspar[/name_m] coming after [name_u]Riley[/name_u].
