I know one person named Keziah, and she pronounces it Keh-zee-ah. I didn't think there were any other pronunciations haha. I think it's a really great name and it's unusual yet familiar at the same time.Libby Felicity Annalise Isla Phoebe Carina Violet Martha Ariana | Iowan Macsen Henry Isaac Jude Freddie Aneurin Niall Adair

I'd never heard this name in real life; I'd just seen it in the Bible (she was one of Job's latest three daughters.) I supposed it was pronounced keh-ZIE-ah because of its similarity to Josiah, Jeremiah, Tobiah, etc., so I was surprised to see Nameberry's pronunciations: KEE-zee-ah or KEE-zhah (also different from the OP's preferred pronunciation.) Why would it be pronounced differently than similar names? But I'm willing to be corrected, especially since I find all of these alternate pronunciations more attractive than keh-ZIE-ah.
I like the name, especially spelled Kezia. Best wishes!"He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."
