Messiah – Scary Mommy

Messiah

Of Aramaic origin, this name means “savior or deliverer.” And anyone who gets this name has some pretty big shoes to fill, culturally speaking. Heaven forbid (no pun intended) a kid named Messiah ever be anything but angelic!

Nicknames:

Si, Siah.

Famous people named Messiah:

Um, Jesus? Other than that, there’s pretty much no one to list here — unless it’s Messiah Ya’Majesty Harris, son of rapper T.I.

Fun fact:

In 2013, a Tennessee judge ruled that a couple couldn’t name their son Messiah because, as she wrote in her order, “Labeling this child ‘Messiah’ places an undue burden on him that as a human being, he cannot fulfill.” The judge was later fired.
