Comments and insights on the name Zavier: | Edit

We named our son, Zavier Nathaniel ('92) even though he is known my Nate (nickname)his 1st name attracts alot of attention for being so unique. We have also met alot of Xavier's but no Zavier's. So far all the definitions on the name have rung true or it has in our case. He is def strong, friendly, bright, popular, athletic and very loyal to his faith and family.

Personal experiences with the name Zavier: | Edit

We named our first born son Zavier. We wanted a name that couldn't be shortened to a nickname, that's why he is Zavier rather than Xavier. But, of course, he has still gotten nicknames. He is called "Zee" most frequently, or "Zav". We love his name, and have only run into Xaviers but no other Zaviers.
