Comments for KEZIAH:

Might mean "polished, refined" in Hebrew. Job gave all three of his later daughters unusual names associated with beauty and purity.

My wife and I changed the "E" to an "A" and named our son Kaziah. I thought it might be a little odd but he starts high school in the fall and loves his name. All of his friends call him Kaz for short! What a great name!

The name is derived from the Hebrew qatsa, which means "to cut off, strip off bark". (http://takeourword.com/current/page1.html)

The love of my life is from Mexico, and her name is Cesiah, which is the way this name is rendered in an old Spanish Bible. I think it appears better with her spelling. Moreover, I found that the way it is rendered in the Spanish New International Version is Canela, which means Cinammon.

I know of a girl named Kezzie. Maybe it's short for Keziah.

I think Keziah is one of the most beautiful names there is, which is why my nineteen month old daughter has this name. We call her Kezzie for short too.

Hello I am French and I have called my son Kéziah (born in 1999 and who is seven years old now). This is just to say that Kéziah is not exclusively a girl name, I saw on the web that some people in France did like me. In fact when we thought of giving this name to our son, it was because of Keziah Jones, a great guitarist coming from Nigeria. In order to make it a little bit more a French male name, I have put a French accent on the "e" so that his name is Kéziah (I am not sure that all the other French people did it!). My boy is clever and very nice, and he is very proud of his name, too. Of course, we familiarly call him "Kez." Hoping this could contribute to enlarge the debate about the name.

I am very proud to say that is my name. My parents named me from the 3 daughters of Job, Jemimah, Keziah, and Keren-Happuch. My full name is Keren Keziah. It also means "the most beautiful girl in the land". And indeed I know deep inside I am.

I have known of the name Keziah since a child and always loved it particularly as it comes from the name of the cassia tree which produces cinnamon which is the most gorgeous smell. I have only known one Keziah until finally after three boys my daughter Keziah Star was born - she is now 3 months old and we have had many positive responses to her name. Sometimes we call her Kizzy which I beleive was the usual abreviation when the name was very popuar in Puritan times.

I've also heard this pronounced KEZ-ee-ah. I like kez-EYE-ah better.

I have met two Keziah's so far, both of which pronounced it kez-ee-ah and used Kezzie/Kez as a nickname.

There's something about this name that I find off-putting.
-- Surreal  12/27/2006
I really like this for a boy or girl.

This was the name of my fourth generation grandmother. While doing research about her I found that some people would spell her like like Kisiah, Kesiah, Kessiah and Kazia. I think it is a very beautiful name with a quality of strength and pride. =)

Am very proud of this name because am called Keziah, my friends call me Kezzy or Kez. Apart from other views mine is based on the fact that Keziah was one of the blessings God gave Job after losing all he had. The name Keziah is actually associated with "BLESSING". It is a wonderful name almost devine.

The 'z' makes the name sound harsh, and the -iah too Biblical.

I think this name is used to mean someone very beautiful and loveable.

I think Keziah is a beautiful name for a girl. I like that it also means "cassia" or "cinnamon" as that is one of my favorite scents.

This is going to be the name of my little sister. We are pronouncing it Keh-ZEE-ah.
-- TeamPeeta4ever  9/23/2010
Neat name. Much better than the horrendous "Keisha".
-- Dawson  12/31/2010
I went to school with a Keziah nickname Kizzie which I think is quite a spunky nickname.

This is my name. But I have the alternate spelling, Kisiah. After my 5th great grandmother. I am 35 years old and have met only one other Kisiah in my lifetime. I get compliments on my name almost every time I introduce myself to people. They say it is very unique and beautiful. I am also VERY used to people not remembering my name, it's a hard one. But over all, have always been very happy with my name, and proud of it.

Keziah, pronounced in Hebrew as "Ketzi'ah" was the name of one of Job's daughters after his ordeal had ended. It refers to the cassia tree or rather the spicy sweet smelling cinnamon powder that was obtained from the plant and used as a perfume at the time. Job often mentions in the scriptures how he was so miserable, he "sat in ashes", "he repents in ashes". Ashes are a sign of deep grief and mourning. That when God had healed and restored everything to him, more than he previously had, he named his now second daughter Keziah as a perfumed cinnamon powder a symbol of restoration and beauty in contrast to his ashes of grief and mourning.

I named our second daughter Keziah by inspiration of the ruach ha kodesh. He told me that her name means "protector," just as the bark protects the tree's life force. The ruach told me that she would go through much tribulation in her life and that she would live up to her name by protecting her older sister and others around her. I marvel at Yahweh's wisdom in guiding us to name our children and how they live up to the meanings of their names!

I've always known my name had biblical origins, but couldn't find exactly how it was spelled as there are so many translations. I have a variation of the name, Kessiah. I've battled with liking my name, but grown to love it as I've gotten older. I know of at least two other Kessiahs; one being my great-great-great-great-great-grandmother on my father's side, and a girl whose mother asked mine if she could use the name. I'm thinking of naming a child (girl or boy regardless) a variation of it as well. It makes me happy to see that it's a well liked name worldwide, people always tell me it's unique and beautiful.
