Zion is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin encompassing ideals of paradise on earth. Zion's roots are varied, finding nourishing foundations in both the Hebrew ṣiyyôn, meaning "castle," as well as ṣiyya, meaning "desert." However, its most enduring meaning is the "highest point," in reference to Jerusalem's ancient citadel conquered by David. Though emerging as a biblical name for the “Promised Land,” Zion has transformed into a symbol of utopia into which many project visions of their desired haven. Subjective to individual ideas of sanctity and bliss, Zion is a powerful indication of your unwavering sentiments towards your little one. What a sweet way to celebrate one of your highest points and greatest achievements.
