  7. Umber

      Color name

      Slovene variation of Ulrich, German
    • Meaning:

      "rich and noble heritage"
    • Description:

      A relatively stylish choice in Slovenia, where it is the standard form of Ulrich. Unlikely to catch on in the US, where U is the least common initial.
  10. Uriel
    • Origin:

      Hebrew
    • Meaning:

      "God is my light"
    • Description:

      It's the name of an Old Testament archangel that's symbolically given to boys born during Chanukah, but the possibility of unsavory nicknames (urinal?) make the short form Uri a better bet.
  11. Urien
    • Origin:

      Welsh
    • Meaning:

      "of privileged birth"
    • Description:

      Too close to the name of a bodily fluid.
  12. Urijah
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Uriah
    • Description:

      A creative spelling of Uriah, possibly without the negative connotation. Biblically, Urijah was a prophet mentioned in the book of Jeremiah.
  13. Uroš
    • Origin:

      Slavic, Serbian, and Slovenian from Hungarian
    • Meaning:

      "lord"
    • Description:

      Uroš was derived from the Hungarian root úr, meaning "lord." It is primarily used in Serbia, but ranks in the Slovenian Top 100 as well.
  14. Uziah
    • Origin:

      Hebrew, variant spelling of Uzziah, “Jehovah is my strength”
    • Description:

      One of the most unusual of the biblical iah-options, this was the name of a long-reigning king of Judea, and just might appeal to the parent looking for a quasi-unique Old Testament choice. And it avoids the negative Dickensian aura of the other New Testament U-name, Uriah.
  15. Ulfric
    • Ulltan
      • Ural
        • Valentine
          • Origin:

            Latin
          • Meaning:

            "strength, health"
          • Description:

            Valentine is an attractive Shakespearean name with romantic associations, but those very ties to the saint and the sentimental holiday have sent it into a decline, one which we think may be about to turn around.
        • Valerian
          • Origin:

            Latin
          • Meaning:

            "strength, health"
          • Description:

            This name of a Roman emperor and of a sedating plant doesn't have much of a baby name future, unless you just like its strong, rhythmic sound.
        • Valeriano
