Actually, I'm pretty sure that it's pronounced he-ze-KEYE-uh.

Actually, you do not seem to have read the key to pronunciation. When -IE- is used, it is pronounced the same as -eye-.

The root word that is usually translated as "strength" can, more specifically, be translated as "tenacity."

Hezekiah is not related to Ezekiel. It is transliterated to Hizkiyyahu and sometimes Ezekias, but not Ezekiel. Ezekiel comes from Y'hez'qel.

I love this name! It's unique without being too crazy/unpronounceable, and it has a very strong, yet fun sound to it. I'd use it with the nickname Kai.
