  • I instantly think of Urine or Urethra. Sorry. I do think Uri is a cute NN though.

  • Is it pronounced like "your-eye-u"? If so, I like the name.

  • I don't like it personally.

  • Personally I don't like it. I do think of Urine or something and I have no idea how to say it which makes it even worst.

  • It's difficult because it's not obvious how to pronounce it. Could you change the spelling so the pronounciation is less ambiguous?

  • to each it's own

  • It sounds pretty, and I think it says "boy" to me pretty well, like Elijah from the Bible, so lots of people should know it's a boy name.

    As for associations, I have 2- first, it reminds me of Uriah Heep of _David Copperfield_. I suppose not that many people read that book these days, so you won't get too much of that (he is a slimy bad guy in the book). You will get the urine stuff though.
