My sister has told me she intends to use Ezekiel, NN Zeke. I had personally favoured Hezekiah, NN Zeke. I think I'll let her have her dibs, though.
Well known, in the Top Thousand, yet outside the Top Hundred, is sort of the sweet spot for me. Especially for boys. So perhaps I am coming at this from a different angle. I've gotten enough shade for considering popular boys' names ("Gabriel?!") to worry about Zeke at all. It is really the Top 50 and above I would avoid. And even then... if I loved it... I just mostly don't.

Amaré Elyse (2 years). Her name is the present infinitive of "to love" in Latin, and we pronounce it with an accent on the end, so it sounds (phonetically) like Am-uh-RAY. We love her name, and especially the sweet way she says it herself.
Job Marcellus (Born 11/6/2013). We call him Joby.
"Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful." ~ James 5:11 ~

I posted on another thread, but Zeke is my nephew's name. He turned 2 in December. My sister and BIL loved the name Zeke but didn't like Ezekiel so "just Zeke" he is! I know another Zeke who is 3 and its short for Ezekiel. I also knew a man growing up by this name who was older (I was a child...but assume he was in his 50's when I was growing up in the 80's?). It always had an Amish feel to me, but, now I only really see it as a little boys name. It could become popular, but, I don't see it hitting the top 10 any time soon.Married to my love since August 2001
