I had my son in June 2006 and my fiance and I named our son Jeremiah Lee. We both loved the name so much because first of all it is a biblical name and it means something so beautiful. Plus, it is quite unique. Not many people have the name Jeremiah which makes him one of a kind. The name just felt right and we loved it so that's what we named him. Plus Jeremiah was a bull frog, he was a good friend of mine. LOL.

My three year old son is named Jeremiah. We like the name because it is a biblical name. His name means "appointed by God."

i absolutely love the name.. my sons name is Jerimiah Ray. I had my son in November 24th,2019 and he is a blessing. always laughing, so happy, strong, brave. I couldnt ask for a better'son :) I did not pick his name from the bible. his fathe's name is Jesse Ray. everybody was doing the jr. names and i didnt want that, so i chaned the first name and kept the middle and last, with the'same initials. jerimiah was the cutest jay name and also none of my friends kids had that name. today however i looked up in the bible, Jeremiah 20:11, his name and the year he was born, and the bible verse read... But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten.
