Origin:Latin
Meaning:The Lord is my teacher
Mariah is a girl’s name of Latin origin, meaning “The Lord is my teacher.” from the Latin Maria and the Hebrew Moriah, this heavenly variation is a modern take inspired by the strong feminine biblical figure. If pop culture is more your style, then Mariah Carey is just as strong a character for your little one to look to. While the singer dominated the music charts in the 1990s, her name had the same effect on new parents. Maintaining it’s popularity over the last three decades, this melodic title could be perfect for a little girl with a big voice.
