Moriah \m(o)-riah\ as a girl's name is pronounced moh-RYE-ah. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of Moriah is "the hill country". Also possibly "the Lord is my teacher". Biblical: The land of Moriah mentioned was a mountainous region. It is believed Abraham was directed there by God to sacrifice Isaac. God intervened, a ram was provided and Isaac was saved. Moriah is thus associated with divine providence, and known as "land of the vision". May also be used as a variant of Maria or Mary.
