ZEKARYÂH / ZEKARYÂHÛ (זְכַרְיָה) ZAKHARíāS (Ζαχαρίᾱς)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Hebrew “Zekaryâh / Zekaryâhû”, meaning “God has remembered”. Zechariah was an important person in the Hebrew Bible and traditionally considered the author of the Book of Zechariah, the eleventh of the Twelve Minor Prophets. He was a prophet of the two-tribe Kingdom of Judah, and like Ezekiel was of priestly extraction. In the New Testament Gospel of Matthew, Jesus is quoted as stating that Zechariah son of Barachiah was killed between the altar and the temple. Pope Zachary (679–752) was Pope from 10 December 741 to his death in 752. A new emerging bearer of this name is Zachary John Quinto (born 1977) an American actor and film producer.
