If you want "uncommon", can't it be any made-up name? How uncommon or common do you need it to be?

Maybe already you know Japanese vowel is only ‚ A‚’A‚€A‚¦A‚¨(a,i,u,e,o).
Names starting "‚Ά(ji)","‚Ά‚γ(ju/jyu)" and "‚Ά‚ε(jo/jyo)" are not unusual,
but if make it a name that starting "‚Ά‚α(ja)" or "‚Ά‚₯(je)",
the name will not be strange sound as Japanese name.(depends on readers)

For "‚Ά‚α(ja)" kanji may use "ŽΦ" or "ŽΧ",
but as a meaning is not good, it depends on the personality of the character.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%82%AA
For "‚Ά‚₯(je)" is no kanji, but it may be interesting to use
starting ‚΄,(‚Ά),‚Έ,‚Ί,‚Ό/za,(zi=ji),zu,ze,zo kanji instead.
Because it may be read so as dialects or kids pronunciation.

How about using a real address,rail station or bus stop name in Japan?
Search results are not all characters starting "J", but guess it will be big hints.

And, personally "Jugemu" is no recommend.
BC, that name comes up in the story of famous "Rakugo".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rakugo

A parent who is troubled to give a child's name is a story saying
that father wishes for happiness of a child and connects all the names super long name
like a "tongue twister/‘ŒϋŒΎ—t" or "spells/Žτ•Ά" of magic.
In 2017 winter(Jan-Mar as last cool/period) TV-animation
"Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju" picked it up at episode 4 of season 2.

So that name became known to core fans of Japanese anime in whole world already.
