Im quite taken to the name Zach but there is that many spellings of it im unsure which is the most popular!

So far i have some across..


Which is the most recognised spelling does anyone know?

EliCon Wed 21-Dec-16 15:01:33

Zach is classic for me and most preferred.

We have a Zac (full name is Zachary). I thought the "h" on the end looked odd, so we just went for the simplistic shortened form.

I do like zach and zachary but im unsure whether to put a name on the birth certificate that i will most likely never use yet will people automatically think zach is zachary like people assume sam is samuel?

I would have said Zach or zac is short for Zachary. So depends what his name will be! I like Zak. Not short for anything smile

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 21-Dec-16 15:17:22

I like Zac.

Glitterous Wed 21-Dec-16 16:05:04

I prefer Zac but any spelling you've listed is fine.

girlelephant Wed 21-Dec-16 16:08:45

I wouldn't presume that Zac was an abbreviation and would spell it as I have

NoCapes Wed 21-Dec-16 16:10:54

I have a Zachary which we shorten to Zach

I have an irrational hatred of the Zack spelling - it looks so harsh

Sophronia Wed 21-Dec-16 16:49:31

I like Zach or Zac

Sophronia Wed 21-Dec-16 16:50:11

But I'd definitely put Zachary on the bc.

bluechameleon Wed 21-Dec-16 18:03:04

I don't like Zak but all the others are fine. I think Zachary is lovely so would use the full name.

Zach or Zac if short for Zachariah, Zachary or Zaccheus

Zak if short for Zakaria (this is a Muslim spelling, not a "unique" spelling".

AmberEars Wed 21-Dec-16 18:09:11

Or Zac if short for Isaac

ineedamoreadultieradult Wed 21-Dec-16 18:11:23

Zac is most common in my circle of friends/acquaintances and it is sometimes just Zac on the birth certificate.

Zachary. Zach.

Trills Wed 21-Dec-16 18:34:46

Full name Zachary

Always put the long version, then they have a choice.

lovelearning Wed 21-Dec-16 18:39:19

VanessaBet Wed 21-Dec-16 18:40:09

Would you say Zach/Zachary is very popular?

I like Luke too.

VanessaBet Wed 21-Dec-16 18:47:29

I know one Zach (Zachary) and one Zac (Isaac, mine). They're both 8

lovelearning Wed 21-Dec-16 18:47:35

Not many spelling variants of Luke.wink

OlennasWimple Wed 21-Dec-16 18:47:44

Luke is a perfect name if you are unsure whether to "do" shortened names or not! And only one spelling (I think!) to worry about
