We have prayed diligently for our baby girls name. All of our children are named after someone and are special in meaning. We knew we wanted a Hebrew name but I also desired a feminine name. I have taken liberty to change the common spellings and make them unique. I couldn't decide on adding the Y in Moriah but after seeing it spelled out, what stood out to me was "YAH" and I had immediate confirmation in my spirit. Praise Yah for answered prayers!
With all my heart I will endeavor to set her apart to the Most High knowing He has chosen her for a purpose. May David and I humbly and diligently teach her of His ways so that she will walk in them all of her days.
