This biblical boys' name refers to the leader of the Jews who rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem once the city was returned from Babylonian rule; he also got the people back in touch with their faith. Nehemiah, mostly considered a Jewish name, was barely recognized until almost the 21st century when it and lesser-known biblical names like Zachariah and Josiah became popular.
