Meaning:the Lord recalled
Zackary is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin. This traditionally Biblical name translates to “the Lord recalled,” and is a diminutive of Zachariah. In the Hebrew Bible, Zachariah was the father of John the Baptist. As the story goes, Zachariah was so shocked by his wife’s pregnancy occurring past her supposed child-bearing years that he was struck literally speechless until the birth of his son, when God restored his ability to speak. Zachariah was also named a saint, with his feast day being celebrated on November 15th. Zackary puts a modern flair on this traditional name, allowing you to pay tribute to your faith with distinct style if you so wish.
