Mariah is a spelling name of the given name Maria. Its use in an English-language context suggests the pronunciation /məˈraɪə/, i.e. the traditional pronunciation of Latin Maria (as opposed to the Spanish/Italian pronunciation now also commonly encountered in English).

The name was rarely given in the United States prior to the 1990s, when it bounced in popularity, from rank 562 in 1989 to rank 62 in 1998, in imitation of the name of singer Mariah Carey (whose Vision of Love topped the charts in 1990).
