Meaning:Just; Righteous
By the sound of Zadok, one can’t help but feel a sense of respect and admiration. The credit really goes to the son of Aaron, who is also Moses’s nephew. According to the Hebrew Bible, Zadok is said to have served as High Priest of Israel during both King David and King Solomon’s reigns. His role at the latter’s coronation inspired a British anthem, Zadok the Priest, that is sung, to this day, at the crowning of every British monarch. Rich with religious and cultural significance, Zadok is a name that can help your little one feel proud of their ancestry and heritage. And if nothing else, the moniker’s meanings of “just” and “righteousness” can nudge them towards a better path.
