Ezequiel Escobar is a character by Machado de Assis.
A diminutive of this name is Cheque.
Because in most Latin American dialects of Spanish, "s" and "z" are pronounced the same, Esequiel is a fairly common variant spelling of this among Spanish speakers in the Americas. For example, in the 1940 United States census there were 619 men and boys named Ezequiel and 341 named Esequiel.
The name both looks and sounds completely unattractive. It looks like the name of a prescription drug.
An alternate spelling for this name is Eseqial, which was used by a male on the 1930 Censo México (Mexico Census).
