Boy names with a Z in it

My hubby and I have been going through names for 6 months and still can’t decide on anything. We like non-traditional names that aren’t too out there or trendy, so its been hard! I’ve had nightmares of having a nameless son! Our last name starts with a Z, so we were thinking a name with a Z in it would sound nice. We don’t really like any names that start with a Z. The middle name will be [name]Kelly[/name] or [name]Kellan[/name].


[name]Ezra[/name] is the first that came to mind.


[name]Ezekiel[/name] - [name]Zeke[/name] is a cool nickname, but I guess that might qualify as starting with the letter Z.

I hope that helps!

[name]Ezra[/name] pops to mind first. Lazarus is cute too.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Lazarus[/name] or [name]Ezra[/name]?

I like [name]Ezra[/name] and [name]Ezekiel[/name] that were suggested. I also love [name]Zane[/name], but that starts with a “Z”, so you might not be fond of it. What about:

[name]Eleazar[/name]/[name]Eliezer[/name] (I’ve heard this both as el-ee-AY-zer and eh-LIE-zer)
[name]Paz[/name] (maybe more girly, since paz is feminine in Spanish, I think, but [name]Pax[/name] is popular for boys and it also means “peace”, so I thought it might be nice. I like [name]Patrick[/name] nn [name]Pax[/name] so maybe [name]Patrick[/name] nn [name]Paz[/name] could be cool, too?)

That’s about all I’ve got, sorry! Good luck!

So here’s a whole lot, do you like any?

Thank you for the suggestions! I like [name]Cruz[/name], [name]Chaz[/name] but not [name]Chaziel[/name], and I like [name]Zac[/name] but not really [name]Zachary[/name]. Lol! I’m so picky, which is my problem.

The only other ones I can think of are [name]Laszlo[/name], [name]Alonso[/name]/[name]Alonzo[/name], and [name]Azariah[/name]. I have a secret love of all of these names, but they have been vetoed. [name]Azariah[/name] almost made it onto our list. It has a good meaning and it was the Hebrew name of Abednego, from the Bible story of Shadrach, [name]Meshach[/name], and Abednego, so I love the Biblical reference. We couldn’t do it though because it could easily become Az, which would likely become a$$ at some point. Still love it though! [name]Laszlo[/name] and [name]Alonso[/name] are definite guilty pleasures for me. They are just so fun to say :wink:

Well, I wouldn’t normally suggest a -z ending name with a last name starting with Z, but I do like:

Mantz [name]Kellan[/name]
[name]Enzo[/name] [name]Kelly[/name]

If you like [name]Cruz[/name], [name]Chaz[/name], and [name]Zac[/name], why not drop looking for a -z and simply look for a crisp, short name? You could throw in letter x, q, t, v, or o, which would look pretty cool with your Z last name… [name]Don[/name]'t forget the K in [name]Kelly[/name] or [name]Kellan[/name] is going to look and sound good with the z :slight_smile:

[name]Milo[/name] [name]Kellan[/name], Brax [name]Kelly[/name], [name]Chet[/name] [name]Kelly[/name], [name]Rafe[/name] [name]Kellan[/name], [name]Rhett[/name] [name]Kelly[/name], [name]Quinn[/name] [name]Kelly[/name], [name]Beau[/name] [name]Kelly[/name], [name]Lev[/name] [name]Kellan[/name], etc.

Good luck!

[name]Jabez[/name] (jay-bez) is an underused got-a-Z name I’m fond of.
