- Personal experiences with the name Zachariah: | Edit
After having my daughter I needed a good name that went with hers. Her name was Amaris and Amaris in the Hebrew means Promised by God. Zachariah in the Hebrew Means God Remembers. At the time we were going through lots of trouble with finding work and having many tribulations. Zachariah came at a time where I know "God Remembers" him and all of us through the struggles we were going through. To this day his name has always fit him. Every time when my son struggles I am constantly reminded that God is always for him! My children always tell people what their names mean and live a testimony of their names.
