Thoughts on zachary/zach? Baby was born via c section on tuesday and still has no name. One contender was ollie/oliver but has now been dismissed by oh.
So what do you ladies think of the latest contender, he needs a name!?

Love it. We'd have used it if we didn't already have a family member called that.

Love it. Was going to be dc 2s name if she'd have been a boy.

Zachary means 'sugar' in Greek btw.
the problem is that it will be abbreviated to Zak which has been the 'try hard to be out there' boys name choice for many years now.

Love Zachary and Zach.

I love Zachary with Zac as a shortening. If we ever have a Ds that'll be his name. Congratulations!

I like Zachary (it is ds2 middle name) , wanted it to be his first name but ds1 chose that!

Love Zachary/Zach but I would because I have a 14 yr old Zach smile.
I also love Oliver,I have a 16 yr old called Oliver lol.
Good name choices grin

Love it. It's our first choice for a boy ATM too!
We'd shorten to Zach rather than Zac or Zak as some have mentioned smile

CleverOl10 Sun 16-Mar-14 14:15:15

My ds is Oliver nn Ollie. We are considering Zac for ds2 but prefer it to be short for Isaac rather than Zachary. Seems we have quite similar tastes!

I have a son named Zachariah...couldn't decide between Zachariah or Zachary but went with Zachariah in the end...nicknamed zach and hate when people spell it zac, zak or zack!!!

I like Zachary but would spell Zach as Zack.

I'd use Zak as nickname, with that spelling.
