Uriel is my name too. That's all I really have to say. I live in marfa to by the way. Most people can't pronounce it and that makes me want to kms. Nothing else to say but that I'm 13 at the moment of writing this

We're naming our baby Caden (he'll go by Cade for short). It's becoming more popular, but It'still is a little different. :)

Im pregnant with my first child and we foound hes aboy... so we are super'stoked!! We have chosen names back and forth.. we heard the name Urijah and fell in love with it.. and the meaning just makes it more awesome!!

Parents should consider the feelings of the child when selecting a name. Uriah is a name that invIt's teasing and should not be inflicted on anyone.

My baby boy is due Feb 22nd and I am naming him Uriah Daniel. I love the name but when I tell other people what I am naming him they look at me like Im speaking some foreign language but good for me I dont care what they think. Also my boyfriends other children's names are Maya, Nehemiah, and Josiah; we decided Uriah flows well.

We named our child Caden (he was born in 2015). We are disappointed that It's becoming popular since it took us so long to find a unique name. We love the name, non'theless. We like that the name is more gender-neutral. People often'think Caden is a girl, even when he's in a baseball cap.

My son was born July 14, 2021 and I decided to name him Uriah after discovering the meaning. Everyone loves his name and it fits him so well. He is my light!

06/27/2023 10:06:28

Sadly, this neat-sounding name has its most famous name'sake in the loathsome character from Dickens' David Copperfield. Uriah Heep (after whom the band is named) was always leering at a smart young woman whom he was too afraid to approach and too uneducated to enchant.

05/01/2023 00:03:46

I had my baby boy in October and I named him Uriah Christopher. When I tell people his name for the first time they have to It'sink in because it is a very unique name. When'they learn how to say it, they think It's beautiful. And when'they see my baby and relate the name to him they love it....

04/15/2023 13:28:08

I know Uriah is a boys name but my niece's name is Uriah but spelt 'Uryah'. Her mum likes the meaning of the name 'God is my light'. So she named her Daugther Uryah. She might grow up to be Uryah Warrior Princess.hehehehehe! Wellington- New Zealand

I named my son Uriah and he has definitely lived up to the name. He is one of a kind and gets all kinds of positive attention from having a unique and beautiful name. He loves his name and he is definitely The Light of God!

03/04/2023 04:19:10

I named my son Uriah when he was born in 2016. People always say "Oh I love that name! It's so unique!" It is just like my little RYRY very unique. I beli've that very few people can have this name which holds such a strong meaning. because Uriah truly is my light in what can be a very dark tunnel.

02/22/2023 14:47:32

my name is uriah and dont be hatein on my name and it dont shoud like pee so suck on that !!!bxtch

02/02/2023 06:38:34

I look forward to naming my first boy Uriah! I think it is a beautiful name with an incredible message. Many of my friends don't think it is the best name, but then again I am a lot more concerned about giving my children unique names with powerful meanings rather than basic names.

12/25/2022 06:36:24

Uriah is the'same as the Archangel Uriel (The Light of God). Sadly, this name is now more commonly associated with the loathsome Dickens Character Uriah Heep. The Archangel's name Uriel is still very popular in South America though.

12/21/2022 02:05:48

I suggest everyone read Charles Dickens' David Copperfield to find out why the name Uriah is riddiculed!

12/15/2022 23:50:20

we're considering the name if we have a boy but we're paranoid he'll get "Nate" which we dont like ... we are so on the fence with this name!

12/04/2022 10:42:06

This is my brothe's name and its great, i've only ever met one other Zander, its really original. He pronounces it Za (to rhyme with far) nder, whereas americans usually pronounce it Zan (to rhyme with fan) der.

11/27/2022 08:32:24

I am due on the 4rth of July and and I realy love this name beacuse it is so different and I am a christian and he truly is the light!!

10/08/2022 10:56:34

I can't help but thing Urea when I hear and see this name. DON'T NAME YOUR KID SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE PEE!!!

08/24/2022 04:20:24

My Name is Uriah and i love it! its so unique like my personality, my Grandmother wanted to name me Rosie :P YUCK! I was called things like Urine, Urethra, Eyeball, and any other thing they could think of! it just taught me to be proud of being unique as i got older. of course as a little girl i would reply with at least my face doesn't look like yours! and stick out my tongue. soon enough it became a game I have a friend named McKree and with our names I call him McQueer and he calls me Urine . It's quite endearing actually :D If you want a KICKASS kid name your kid Uriah but not everybody do it at once I don't want to end up like Jordan A, B, C, or D.

My baby boy is due on July 14th and we are going to name him Uriah. I just loved the way It'sounded and it has a beautiful meaning. Some people react differently when I tell them some love it and some compare it to Urea or Dickens. After reading some of these comments I am more determined to use it. It's a great name and at least my son won't have to be called Uriah A in his class because there are already two kids with that'same name.

My youth pastors just had their baby today, called Uriah Isaac. We all think It'sounds surfy! CONGRATULATIONS GUYS! love all the kids @ Nexgen Youth Ministries

my name is Uriah (I was named after my grandfather) As a child I was called RYE... which was fine, after all Uriah is a big name for a kid to carry and explain. After i graduated from school I took on my true name and get compliments on it all the time. As an artist, I find it to be a perfect fit and mark. Thank you mom and dad~ though I'must say at times I feel the biblical curse of the name and its history with love... oh, and special thanks to the Pixies and Frank Black for his creative and well educated mind "Dead"

10/29/2021 03:59:42

I love the name because It's my madian name. People used to tease me and say Urine, but I would just come back with something for their last name and that was that! I had the last name for 31 years, but I decided to take my husbands last name of course, but I'm still a Uriah at heart!
