I know a very confident, young boy named Zebulan/Zeb.

My husband went to high school with a guy named Zebulun (he went by Zeb).

My best friend's cousin has a 6 year old son named Zebulon, they all call him Zebby though, it's a bit much for his young age at the moment but once he's grown it'll be a very strong name for him. Right now, Zebby suits him better.

My name is Zebulon, but I prefer to be called Ulon.

My name is Zebulon and I am a nerdy kid.
