Zeke is a casual form of the name Ezekiel, an important prophet from the Old Testament. How well Zeke holds up depends on the boy: it could be a cooler alternative of Zack, or it could prove too close to "geek." In the United States, it has steadily risen in popularity the past five years, reaching Number 659 in 2015. Both Zeke and Ezekiel lag behind in popularity on the UK charts.
On Sons of Anarchy, Zeke is spelled Zeek. Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot goes by Zeke.
