This spelling can also be used as a variant Arabic transcription of both "Zaahir" (زاهر) and "Zaahir" (ظاهر), as seen on the pages containing their respective transcriptions. [noted -ed]

Also, Az-Zahir/Al-Zahir (الظاهر) is the 75th of the 99 names of Allah, meaning "the apparent, the manifest, the evident, the outer" (see Zaahir (2)). The "Al-Zahir" meaning "helper, supporter" (الظهير) is not one of the 99 names of Allah: (Zahir means "the Manifest One") (Zahir means "the Manifest, the Evident, the Outer") (Zahir means "the Manifest, the Perceptible") (Az-Zahir means "the Manifest")
If you actually search up "ظهير", you'll actually come across the word "Dahir", the name of a Moroccan king's decree: But in its defense, it is in fact used as a given name: (Zahir-ud-Din Muhammed). To sum this up, I believe that Zahir (ظهير) "helper, supporter" is not a name of Allah but is used as a given name by other people, while Zahir (ظاهر) "manifest, emerge, evident" is one of the true names of Allah.
