"i absolutely love the name.. my sons name is Jerimiah Ray. I had my son in November 24th,2011 and he is a blessing. always laughing, so happy, strong, brave. I couldnt ask for a better son :) I did not pick his name from the bible. his fathers name is Jesse Ray. everybody was doing the jr. names and i didnt want that, so i chaned the first name and kept the middle and last, with the same initials. jerimiah was the cutest jay name and also none of my friends kids had that name. today however i looked up in the bible, Jeremiah 20:11, his name and the year he was born, and the bible verse read...
But the LORD is with me like a mighty warrior; so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced; their dishonor will never be forgotten." May. 3, 2013:
"My son name is Jeremiah, but we spelled it different so it would be unique still! We spell it "Jeremaya"......he has an older sister named Amaya from my husband's first relationship.

"My son who is 35 years old is named Jeremiah James, we call him Jim Bob, Jim and or Jimmy, the reason for this was no one seems to know how to spell Jeremiah, including the teacher whom he had in grammer school. I chose both his first and middle name from the bible." Apr. 29, 2010:
