Zephaniah Origin and Meaning

The name Zephaniah is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "God has hidden".
A minor prophet who has his own Book, Zephaniah is another Old Testament gem waiting to be rediscovered now that Noah and Abraham are becoming too trendy. The vowel-sound ending of Zephaniah is currently band on trend, along with other Biblical boys' names with softer sounds – think Elijah, Asher and Isaiah. Zephaniah would make a perfect lesser-used alternative to Zachariah.

A famous namesake is the British writer and dub poet Benjamin Zephaniah.
