What at people's thoughts on the name Mariah??? Would people assume I'm calling the baby after Mariah Carey?

NMS and Mariah Carey is the first thing that comes to mind.

A family friend named her DD Mariah, as a variation to her mothers name, which is Maria.

But I still think of Mariah Carey!

I think it's ok, but most people would think Mariah Carey

Quite like it but it really does seem to be associated with one person.

I actually really like the name and it's a shame that it's associated with Mariah Carey.

I actually prefer Moriah, though which I think was an Angel (or at least it's in my Angel book).

I really like Mariah. If I loved it I would use it.

I actually think of other Mariahs (spelt Maria but pronounced as in Mariah Carey) - namely Maria Island in Tasmania and Maria in Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. Of course these come from the 19th Century when English people pronounced it the same as Mariah is currently pronounced.

This. And there is Mariah Lucas in PnP. Thinking about it I  prefer the pronunciation Mariah to Maria.

I like the name, but I have a shameful obsession with the diva herself, Mariah Carey. I also went to school with a Mariah, who was a lovely girl. I think if people haven't come across a Mariah, other than Carey - their mind would make that connection almost instantly.

Love the name! Yes people will think of the singer, but I would go for it anyhow! I think whatever name you choose people will have personal connections to, but people will develop new connotations to the name after a while. I had it on my list but DP's first suggestion was my fave name, so it ended up being the only one we discussed lol

I like Mariah. I know a Shania, named when Shania Twain was very popular. Now, 15 years later, the name is entirely hers and I forget any connection to the singer until threads like this come up.

I like the name but I think of the song from "Paint Your Wagon"  -- "They Call the Wind Mariah"
I would choose this name for my baby and Mariah Carey will fade into the ether eventually.
