Fans of the band Three Dog Night will know that "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" -it's the first line in the song "Joy to the World."

Why not just Jeremy? The -iah behind sounds extra. Slightly girly.

"Jeremiah was a bullfrog....he was a good friend of mine"

My husband's name. I love the way it sounds. I know a Jeremiah that is called "Miah" and some have called my husband Jerry. He actually goes by "Jay" more than anything else, because his initials are J.J. and was called J.J. as a kid.

I prefer the name Jeremy. I also think of the song Jeremiah was a Bullfrog.

My son's second middle name is Jeremiah. I love the sound of it.

I've only known one "Jeremiah", and he was extremely nerdy and creepy. I think Jeremy would be a nice nickname though.

As a Jeremiah myself, I would never take on the nickname Jeremy. I really don't like that name. It may be a mouthful but that's what people call me, though my first and middle initials are JJ too.

I like Jeremiah better than Jeremy.

"Yah loosens," from the Hebrew Yah (LORD) and remiyyah (laxness, slackness).

This name sounds so much more fuller and classier than Jeremy. I prefer it much more than Jeremy, which makes me think of one of the boys who made middle school hell. Anyway, great name!

Just another über-biblical -iah name for people who rub their religiousness in everyone's face.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe some people like -iah names simply because they think they sound nice and have strong meanings, not because of religion. They are very refreshing, handsome, and much better than the "-aden" garbage being given to kids these days.

I'm with Ali Hassan all the way -- and I am an atheist! I LOVE "iah" names. Yeah, right! You really have to be a fanatic to give your kid a biblical name -- like Adam, Daniel, David, Deborah, Elizabeth, Esther, Eve, John, Jonathan, Joseph, Mark, Martha, Mary, Matthew, Michael, Paul, Peter, Ruth, Stephen, Thomas, Timothy....

(I've no objection to names ending in "-aden," however.)

Pronounced "jer-e-MI-ya".

This is my brother's name but we call him Miah. I really like it and so does he. I think the name sound very gentle, but it is a small bit girly.

This is my name. I used to hate it when I was younger. I think it can be a really imposing name on a little kid. It's also frustrating that everyone mispells it (Jeramiah, Jerimiah, Geremiah). Other than the fact that most people don't know how to spell it, I love having this name. I haven't known too many people who share my name, and would rather have Jeremiah as my name any day than Josh, Jason, or other names common in my age group.

The Greek form of Jeremiah is ιερεμιου.

The same prophet is also referred to as Jeremias and Jeremy in the New Testament.
Deborah Reyes  1/15/2009
I hate this name. It's ugly and pretentious. Jeremy is much better.
Chrila96  10/23/2010
I really like this name. Besides the Biblical association and meaning, I think it's much more traditional and substantial than the short form "Jeremy," which was trendy in the 1980s and seems like a nickname.
kazoopilot  7/11/2011
I think there is a singer/rapper called Jeremiah.
― Anonymous User  11/26/2011
The English name came as many from a mistake. The Bible was first printed in Germany. When it was translated into English the name remained in the german form. So Jeremiah Should have been translated Ieremia since J is pronounced as I in german and h is silent.
Ps: usually the simplest solution is the correct one;

I slightly prefer Jeremy, but I still find Jeremiah very pleasant-sounding and handsome. I saw it on a girl once, spelled Jera-Maya *rolls eyes*

Jeremiah Fraites is the drummer for the band The Lumineers.

I love this name. I see zilch reasons to loathe "Jeremiah".
― Anonymous User  4/20/2014
I really love this name, so brash, refreshing, rustic and handsome. Great meaning too.

My 13 year old son is Jeremiah James and it has been a wonderful name for him. He is an athlete and also happens to be biracial, so I think it was a good fit for him. I wanted a name that represented both sides of his heritage and didn't lean too much in either direction. We call him J most of the time, as his initials are J.J. and we started calling him that as a baby, but just J. Stuck. He was named after Jeremiah 29:11, which is beautiful scripture to have as a foundation. :)

Jeremy is nicer, in my opinion. The ending, "miah," just sounds ugly to me.
hkols  11/5/2014

To be honest, this makes me think of a creepy old man living in a creepy house in a creepy neighborhood. I much prefer just Jeremy, as it sounds cuter, yet also a bit more masculine at the same time.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/11/2016
In my personal opinion, I find it ironic that people find this name pretentious, obnoxious, etc. When that's all the things Jeremy reminds me of. Jeremiah has this biblical and traditional charm, and a nice sound where as Jeremy just seems dated to me, someone who's in their 40s. Sure, it can seem extra but it just has such a beautiful sound that makes me love the name so much. I would even use it for my child if I had one.
