A perfectly respectable Old Testament name ruined forever through its association with the odious Uriah Heep in David Copperfield. Some people also find this name just too close to the word urine. These negative connotations may be wearing off, however. (Perhaps because people don't read as much Dickens as they used to.) Since 1997, this name has gone from zero to hero; in 2014 Uriah ranked in at a very respectable Number 578.
