"Treasured by the Lord"
Zephaniah is a really cool name that is tragically underused, in my opinion, especially given the popularity of other Z names like Zecheriah. The meaning "treasured by the Lord" is absolutely amazing! I used to think Zephaniah lacked usable nicknames but Zeph is actually really cute. Zephyr is another name on its own but it could also work as a nickname for Zephaniah. Another reason why I love the name Zephaniah is because my favorite verse in the Bible is Zephaniah 3:17. I love how much this verse shows that God loves his people.
