Zacharias is a boy’s name that holds great weight in both Christianity and Islam. While he’s venerated as a prophet in one, there are almost 30 biblical characters to comb through in another. Two of them are standouts—the father of John the Baptist, and the prophet who pens the the Book of Zechariah. Derived from the Hebrew word zakar meaning “to remember” and yah meaning “God,” the moniker translates to “God remembers.” Perhaps with a name like Zacharias, your little one will feel inspired to always do the right thing and make your family and faith proud.
