Ziggy Origin and Meaning

The name Ziggy is a boy's name of German origin.

The ultimate jokey name, à la Ziggy Stardust or the comic-strip character Ziggy. Then again, there's Ziggy Marley, and most anything Marley is cool. Originally named David, his father Bob Marley gave him the nickname "Ziggy" due to the soccer move of the same name.

FionaW Says:


I know it is a bit "controversial " but I do not mind this name and I am actually considering it for my son. :/

rudamama Says:


Love this as a nickname for a little boy, but agree this doesn't work well professionally later in life. Wanted an alternative to "Alex" or "Zander" as a nickname for our son, Alexander, so we chose Ziggy. It's been a hit, especially as I'm a Bowie fan and hubby loves Marley!

Well I mean this would be a good name when you're a small child, but when you're a full-grown adult? This is a pet name.

Nickname for something please...please.

I love the sound of this name. It's just an added bonus to be tied to Ziggy Stardust the rest of your life!

I find this adorable but maybe only because it's the name of one of my beloved virtual pets, haha,

You're not actually considering this, are you? When they apply for jobs it will be hard to take them seriously.
