I love this name. Thought it was reasonably unusal but have noticed it moving up the ranks of popularity recently and I AM one of those people that cares if it's really popular, so want to avoid if people really think it's going to be the next Jack / Oliver.

Becoming too popular - yes or no?

In the school I work (approx 300 children), there are 3 Zac's.

Other than that I know of one other so I wouldnt say it is too popular at the minute, but then it could change.

We have Zachariah here, we do not shorten it.

Picante Sat 07-Feb-09 11:19:12

I too love it - do you think it's ok with a surname starting with K?

Gorionine Sat 07-Feb-09 11:55:06

Picante, go there to see if it fits the right criteria!smile

Try here
for how your name would look in various scenarios, it's fab.

I think with Zack Ephron of HSM it may become popular, but not in the same league as Max or Sam or Jake.

I wouldn't pick it with a surname beginning with K though.

Picante Sat 07-Feb-09 14:25:09

Oh that site is lovely jellybeans!

pulapula Sat 07-Feb-09 15:16:29

I think it is becoming more popular but not that common yet.

It's on my list, but I don't mind popular names as my DD and DS are both in the top 15.
