"This is my name. It is an old name and as such it has many pronunciations, the native language of the person pronouncing it determines whether or not it's being mispronounced. I personally favor the Spanish pronunciation. The only other person that I've met with the name is my father, the only other person I've known with that name is one of the roommates on one season of MTV's The Real World. I'm not sure why it's spiked in popularity, but I've known people to name their children Nehemiah after hearing and liking my name..." Aug. 11, 2008:
