Z names that are fun to say :)

I love boys names beginning with Z! Here are a few of my favourites.

Zappa– another musican inspired anthroponym. Frank Vincent Zappa  composed a variety of musical genre works along with directing feature length films and music videos and designing album covers

Zedekiah- From biblical beginnings meaning “The lord is just” in Hebrew. In the Old Testament the last king of Judah. Nickname possibilities of both Zed and Zeke.

Zelig- Yiddish, form of Selig meaning happy and blessed also a  mockumentary written and directed by Woody Allen. Your dictionary defines it as ”….  an ordinary person who can change themselves to imitate anyone they are near”

Zephyr- From the Greek Zephyrus who was a Anemoi, a  god of the west wind.  The gentlest wind and the messenger of spring.

Zeppelin– Is a type of airship the man who invented it was Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin a German.  Led Zeppelin were an English rock band consisting of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham.

Ziggy- Ziggy Stardust is a song by David Bowie it is of German origin and means victorious peace. Also reminds me of a zigzag!

Zinc– a metallic compound, short and spunky!

Zocalo– is the square in the heart of Mexico city, a gathering place since Aztec times.

Zodiac– is a celestial coordinate system which was first used in the Roman era, its name comes from the Greek ”zoidiakos kuklos” meaning circle of animals. These days the zodiac is more  known for the 12 horoscopes; Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius and Pisces but these are used to track the suns path across the sky and the path of the moon and plants along the ecliptic. 

Zowie-  Greek meaning life, traditionally used as a girls name- but I think a boy could pull it off just as well 🙂

Zurlo- A last name with Italian and Greek roots ” crazy and enthusiastic”  a  similar feel to Arlo.
