Trivia

  • Uriah's name means "flame of God" in Hebrew
  • Uriah's last name Dunn has several different origins.
    • In some cases it is an anglicised form of the Irish surname Ó Duinn, meaning "grandson of Donn"; the Gaelic Donn was originally a byname, meaning "brown-haired" or "chieftain".
    • Another origin of the surname Dunn is from the Middle English dunn, meaning "dark-coloured"; this name originated as a nickname for one with dark hair or skin.
    • Another origin is from a habitative name, derived from Dun in Angus, Scotland; this place name is derived from the Scottish Gaelicdùn, meaning "fort".
    • Another origin is from the Gaelic donn, meaning "brown".
    • In Uriah's case his last name probably suits the first origin that relates to "brown-haired" or "chieftain", as his orange-red hair is very close to the color brown and that he is the leader of a gang.
