    Zaccheus

    What do you think of Zacchaeus John Edwards ? Is it too weird ? How would you pronounce it? I was thinking either Zack-ee-us or Za-key- us.

    I honestly think Zaccheus sounds really harsh. My instinct is to pronounce it Zack-ee-us.

    I much prefer Zachariah John Edwards, or if you really want to keep the 'S' sound Zacharias John Edwards - though it can be rather off-putting when both first and last name end with the same sound.

    There's always Zachary, though that feels very tied to the 80s/90s.

    Nah don't like Zachariah and Zacharias or Zachary. Only Zacchaeus unfortunately. It doesn't sound that bad having s ending first and middle.... I can think of worse things.

    If you really love Zacchaeus / Zaccheus then go for it! It's not to my taste, but it's certainly not horrible.

    Thanks I'm sorry if I came across as rude or anything we all have different tastes, I'm just a bit nervous I've never been able to find any record of the name use ever on the net so worried its a bit out there.
