"My son's name is Zakary, named after his grandmother, Zakia. It fits him so well, although he (and I) does get annoyed when it is misspelled. He now goes by Zak (because it was shorter to write in third grade.) It's perfect for him." Aug. 26, 2009:
""It was often mispelled." It's the most annoying thing in the world to have my name spelt Zakary. I have to correct everyone who writes my name. I do feel unique with it that only so few people are named it compared to most names." Aug. 20, 2009:
"i named my son zakary and people always spell it wrong!! I think it's a cool name though and it certainly suits him!!" Mar. 2, 2007:
"this is my 2 month old sons name. i thought i was the only one who spelled it this way till now. :( no one has pronounced it wrong yet but everyone misspells it. it is pronounced the same as zachary. i originally was goin to spell it zachary but his initials were zak so i thought it would be cute to spell it zakary. so zak is his name and his initials." Jul. 1, 2006:
"It was often mispelled. Zakary was my son. I've never met anyone else with the exact spelling of his name... but alot of boys who's names were spelled differently. It is pronounced exactly as it appears.
We actually chose the name because it was the only one we agreed on, but couldn't agree on how to spell it. One day, we went to a restaurant named Zak's and we figured it out... Zakary. We both loved it! Original to us and yet not odd. lol" Nov. 26, 2005:
