Comforting god : that's exactly what it means nothing more read in Nehemiah, it starts out straight up talking to you unlike the other that talk of others.

I have a brother named Nehemiah
He has a special gift that comes from our ancestors.

It is a nice name but unfortunately the one boy I know named Nehemiah is actually called Mia (pronounced My-ah) by his family. They have named him a strong masculine name but call him by a very feminine nickname. He hates the nickname and the fact most people are too lazy to call him by his full first name and instead opt for any nickname they can come up with like Nee, Nee-ah and Mia, which to him sound either feminine or just dumb. I don't disagree with him.

My middle name is Nehemiah... My first name is Jaydon and it was almost Jeremiah... I absolutely love my middle name, it goes good with Jaydon! I'm proud of it because it's not like everyone else's, like Tarence or Michael or... Matthias.

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

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

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.

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.

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:

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

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. =)

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

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

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.

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).
