Gender: F Pronunciation: KEE-zee-ah or KEE-szhah Meaning of Keziah: "cassia tree" Origin of Keziah: Hebrew

Keziah, also spelled Kezia, is an Old Testament name — she was one of the three daughters of Job, about whom it was said that there were no women all the land who were so fair as Job's daughters — which was widely used for slaves and is still most common in the African-American community. The lovely, distinctive Keziah — along with others like her biblical sister Jemima — deserves full emancipation. Modern parents are also rediscovering the related, cinnamon-scented Cassia.

Some variations include Kezia, Kazia, Keshia, Kizzie, and Kizzy.
