His dads name is Zebulon and he's always liked his name
I think Zebulon is more of a biblical name and you can get a way wiith that in parts of the US.
lol it does sound like some sort of sci-fi or anime crap.
AHA! I was wondering why that name was so familiar.. It's the name of the skateboarding group that made skateboarding popular and street credible. Now I'm really liking the name!
I didn't know that about the skateboarding... I've always loved skateboarding... my 2 yr old rides one down the street lol... I am even more glad I chose his name now
Cool! I recommend watching Lords Of Dogtown. It actually tells about the group and the main guys who revolutionized the sport.
i might have to now... I've seen the previews before
Thank you very much! :)
Gonna name your kid after a weapon in league of legends... oh lawd..
whats league of legends?
your welcome :)
league of legends. your son is OP
League of Legends is one of the most, if not the most, popular online games in the world. Zephyr is also a type of item in Final Fantasy (Zephyr Mantle, Zephyr Cape, Zephyr fan etc)-- perhaps you have at least heard of FF. It's also the key word in many traveling related companies as it's origins means wind. Probably not the best name choice just FYI. But in Freakonomics, a guy named one son Winner and another Loser.. Winner lived a life of crime and was in and out of jail frequently and Loser grew up to be a successful businessman.. So a bad name isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Thanks for the explanation... I was just wondering others opinion since I live in a small close minded town... probably should of made this a poll to tell the outcome easier... meh
I already named my son... his dad is named Zebulon and he never got made fun of... we wanted something as unique that also started with a Z. My name is Raine, pronounced like Rain, but I sometimes tell people its something else, just cause I had a nickname when I was little that morphed into something else and it just stuck... I never got made fun either
Suit yourself. Also rane isn't unusual. That's my sisters name.
i just asked for peoples opinion... don't understand how he's going to be made fun of and nobody can give me a good answer... my names Raine not Rane
Raine is actually a very rare first name for a girl... its weird your sister would have the same name... kinda neat I guess
I suppose. It's Latin. Latin names are common. Because kids make fun of other kids for being different or odd or having anything "weird". It's a fact of life. Odd, hard to spell and pronounce names are "weird".
i was always told it was German and means mighty army or something like that... my moms side of my family is very German
Yes but you don't live in Germany.
huh... I don't know what that has to do with anything... my mom is from Germany, hence the relevancy of me mentioning that lol
are you in Ancient Rome?
English is Latin based. Just FYI. Don't be so offended my god. And I don't see what you being German has to do with anything. I'm Irish doesn't mean my parents have to name me Shannon.
Of course its based on Latin lol I mentioned being German cause that's where my name came from because the reason I asked my original question was about names, right? People on the internet don't offend me... ever lol your comment seemed a bit snotty and I was just stating facts
"Are you in Ancient Rome?" So you're either mentally inept or you were snotty first. Don't give me that "you sounded snotty" bullshit.
You asked if I was in Germany cause I mentioned German so I mentioned Rome cause you mentioned Latin... I never intended to start shit... your own words, don't get so offended... my god lol
Me asking if you were in Germany was a rhetorical question, bub.
ZEF-ar... red hot chili peppers have a song called Zephyr, YouTube it... I sing that to him all the time lol

What's Resonance of Fate?
It's a video game.
we are both a little weird so it fits lol
Like what type of shit? Before I named him I tried to think of how he could get made fun of and couldn't come up with anything... and I'm pretty good at insults
Zephyr blimp, name may also be interpreted as kind of feminine (even though it has basis in Zephyrus, God of Winds but High schoolers don't know that shit).
He'll probably be referred to as "Zeph," it's a harder stop name and sounds more masculine, the final "phyr" kind of makes it sound soft. Just going by how the name slips off the tongue and what comes to mind.
I thought about the whole blimp thing but his dad and I both don't have any problem with our weight and are pretty healthy and don't think he will either
People say he's going to be teased... like what could people say? His dad and I are both attractive and I get compliments on his all the time... we both eat healthy and are not super fit but in good shape, so he's not going to be fat... we make really good money... so what would they tease him about?
kids are mean. if he is popular or one of the "pretty people" then there are different rules for them... they will probably think it is unique. in the end it doesn't matter if others think it is a horrible name, if you like it, and your ok with your son being stuck with it for his whole life, then that is what you should do. Maybe you give him a more normal middle name. so worse case he can go by his middle name. or he can be an initial kid. My ex wife wanted an initial kid. so our youngest is Devn Jon but we call him DJ... you could do ZJ or whatever...
his middle name is Jay lol
Today is the first time I've ever heard of League of Legends
seems like you know what it is?
ow I get it. other people say that too
i didn't know that... I like that better than the Greek meaning of west wind
I named my son and I get a lot of weird looks when asked his name... but I live in a small town in the middle of the Midwest and people here are pretty boring and conservative... I just want to see what other people thought
I didn't do it to be hip... his dads name is Zebulon and we wanted a name similar that started with a Z
Zane... I remember one of the power rangers was called Zane... haha!
Approved by Ghosty.
It is a videogame.
