the Lord exalts
This biblical name was embraced by the Puritans, who brought it to the New World in the 16th century. In the Old Testament, Jeremiah is a major prophet who warned of the fall of Jerusalem and spoke against the worship of false gods and idolatry during the reign of the last kings of Judah. In recent years, Jeremiah’s vintage, vowel-packed ending has made the name an old-school standout among parents, pushing it past the more contemporary Jerome and Jeremy.
