Etymology & Historical Origin - Jeramiah

Jeramiah is a modified spelling of Jeremiah. The name Jeremiah comes from the Hebrew name Yirmeyah meaning “appointed by God” and/or the word yirmәyāhû which means “Yahweh has established.” Jeremiah is borne in the Bible and Old Testament in a book that bears his name. Appointed by God “from the womb,” Jeremiah is often referred to as the “Weeping Prophet” given his gloomy subject matter. Arguably the most depressive person in the Bible, poor Jeremiah has the unfortunate commission from God to prophesize the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians. Jeremiah must bear witness to this horrible event knowing full well that it could have been prevented if only the people had listened to his admonitions to repent! The name was mainly popularized by the austere Puritans in the 16th century, given their penchant for Biblical names depicting moral and religious strictness.
