Jeremiah Family HistoryThis interesting surname derives from the male given name Jeremiah, itself from the Hebrew "Yirmeyahu" which translates as "may God exalt him". The name enjoyed a considerable popularity among Christians as having being borne by the biblical prophet Jeremiah, noted for his lamentations over the faithlessness of Israel. The popular baptismal spelling as 'Jeremias' was recorded in England as early as the 12th century, Iheremias de Tornhill, being noted in the 1189 Pipe Rolls of Yorkshire in the reign of Richard the Lionheart.
