The name Uriah is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "God is my light". Uriah is ranked #591 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Bible Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "Names on NB that make you go WOW!".
From the experts:
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.)
