[ANON POST] Israeli Girls' Name

My sources, mostly Behind the Name, tell me that the name Moriah for girls (as opposed to for the place) is mostly just used in the US. I have two questions: one, would it be out of the question for a Israeli girl to be named that? And two, if it was used for a girl in Israel, how would it most likely be spelled in Roman letters? (I've only seen "Moriah" for the girls' name, but Wikipedia tells me that the Modern Hebrew for the place is "Moriyya.")

Setting is Israel (obviously) in the near future.
