Meaning & History

Possibly means "conceived and born in Babylon" from a contraction of either Assyrian-Babylonian Zəru Bābel "seed of Babylon" or Hebrew זְרוּעַ בָּבֶל (Zərua‘ Bāvel) "the one sown of Babylon". In the Old Testament he led the first group of Jews out of captivity in Babylon in the first year of the Persian king Cyrus.
