Meaning

A beautifully uplifting name that means exactly that, 'uplifting'! This name has been adopted by writers and composers alike, for their characters, from Leonard Bernstein to Charles Dickens. Curiously for a name of such ancient Hebrew heritage, this traditional name suddenly boomed around 2010. Now associated with youth and dynamism, the attractive and versatile Jeremiah has become firmly contemporary.
