Nehemiah is one who is strong and brave and will not come down off of his wall of separation. "And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?" Nehemiah 6:3 (KJV).

I think that Nehemiah is a very strong name and it has a great meaning behind it. I plan on naming my little boy Nehemiah Seth.

Miah (said like Maya) could be a good nickname for this name.

Very nice name. I like it as a middle name for one-syllable names.

Well, I know it may seem strange but I've actually seen a few women be named Nehemiah. Although it was spelled differently. Like Niamiah or Nehemia. I think it's really cute. =)

Ugh, one of these pompous and foreign-sounding Biblical names with the annoying -iah ending again. People would assume the parents are religious wackos.

Hitchcock's Dictionary of Bible names also gives the meaning of Nehemiah as:
consolation; repentance of the Lord

In Greek, Nehemiah is written as follows:
Νεεμίας

The reason a lot of Biblical names end in the "iah" is because that is one way of saying G-d in Hebrew.
So if a name means "G-d comforts", it's Nechemia. If it means "G-d is great", it's Gedalya. If it means "G-d's friend", it's Yedidya, etc. It's not a naming convention, just a religious convention.

Nehemiah is my name, which means "the lord has comforted" or "comforted by Yahweh". I pray and wish that God will grant me that I become like Nehemiah in the Bible. He's my mentor.

A good middle name for this would be Nathan or Nathaniel.

Jeremiah is an exceedingly better name. I dislike the beginning of Nehemiah. The "Nehe" part just doesn't do it for me.
