In many other languages, names are largely gender neutral. While the -yah element is far more commonly used in Hebrew men's names, it's not exclusively masculine. Although I've noticed that it tends to be found as a prefix on "feminine" names rather than as a suffix (Jo- instead of -iah). That said, Azariah can still easily be a girl's name.
This is a wonderful name. It's much better than Abed-nego!
