Meaning and originality:
The Hebrew ציון translates to Zion (Tzion). We can find this name in Bible in 2 Samuel 5:7 “Nevertheless, David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the city of David.” City of David is a historical city and is the oldest neighborhood in Jerusalem. Zion has a legendary status and represents the promised land, a place that god has promised to its chosen people. “Zionism” is the school of thoughts that believes Jews should go back to Palestine and they should be protected. After the Civil War, the slaves in America imported this idea because they were also looking for a place that they could be free in and live a normal life. That is why this name is common in the Black culture.
Here are some famous people named Zion:
Zion Cohen (Israeli soccer player)
Zion Golan (Israeli singer)
Zion Levy (Israeli rabbi in Panama)

The first time that Zion emerged as a popular name for boys In the U.S was in 1998. In 1997, Lauryn Hill and her husband (Bob Marley's son) named their son Zion David-Nesta Marley and that is what led to the popularity of Zion in that time. Nowadays, Zion has moderate levels of popularity in the U.S.

My name is Zion and live in oregon also, i saw someone else was also. My parents named me the not for any religious reason or for its meaning. My namesake was Zion National Park actually, which was named by Mormons, but my parents did choose it for its for the religious meanings. Besides the all the historic meanings I still really like my name. It was hard in elementry and middle school, people would hear my name and kinda look at me if I'm serious or not. Once in high school and now that i am in college people look at me still but tell me that its a really nice and cool name. Besides the historic meanings I still really like my name and glad i have it if anything just for the rarity of it. A little trick I tell people to get my name right is that its Lion with a "Z" and every seems to get it right then.
Zion is an absolutely beautiful name which i gave my one and only son two years ago. He has proved to be my real Mount Zion. Everywhere you say his name, people look with positive reaction. No one has yet pronounced it wrong. I have not come across anyone else with the name and i love it.
My son's name is Zion (pronounced Zy-yon) Of course, people want to say Zi-an); however, I tend to correct them and he does the'same. I have not met too many people with this name. Although, I have heard of a few that live in other'states. People usually relate it to a biblical meaning which was and is the intent. Zion means "City of God." I would definitely recommend this name because I always get the reaction that it is original and unique. Two thumbs way up!!!
My wife is 8 months pregnant and has long decided to name our son Zion. I first struggled with it, because I felt it was such a strong name. But my wife felt even stronger about him being named Zion. I thought, what would people think when'they hear his name? It means so much to many religions and teachings. I really obsessed over his name for awhile. I remember, from the very first time we met and discussed having children..she had the name Zion as her first born son. She just loved the name Zion! I too loved the name and its meaning, but just couldn't decide if our son should have it as his name. Then, once I'mentioned his name to a good friend of mine, and she'said "that is a great and strong name..just like his father." Then I thought .."Yea..why shouldn't he be as strong as his dad and have a name to go with it?" My mom, my wife, as well as a few othe's said they even had dreams about my wife throughout her pregnancy and they all said they dreamt she had a boy even before we knew the'sex. As time went on I grew more and more comfortable and sure of his name Zion..and soon realized that his name is not so important at this time...just having him being born healthy is the most important thing. We are very excited and can't wait to hold him!
I have two children, my 5 year old daughter Marley. And my three month old son Zion, I had Marley's name picked for her befor I even knew her mother,haha But we really struggled with the Boys name, Then sitting down with my family the name just clicked.. Its a perfect named, People always do a double take when we tell them the name.. But we dont care, I love it. We call him "Z-Boy".

I have a 2 year old son whose name is Zion. he's such an adorable, he's living up to his name.
I am due in a few weeks and I'm naming my son Zion. I love It'so much.
ZION, ZION oh ZION! This name is the real thing fm God. For every child that bears this name'shall have his coast enlarged by the Almighty Lord and no weapon fashioned against the child shall prosper. My wife is 8 months egnant and I prayed to God and my son's name'shall be ZION.
My husband and I are 8 months pregnant with a boy. We have agonized over a name for months, and have finally landed on the only one that'seems to fit for our boy (even'though we haven't met him yet). We're choosing it both for its meaning and because it is fresh and classy enough without being too over-the-top. Some relatives are unsure about it, but most are giving two enthusiastic thumbs up.
Our first child's middle name is Zion. he's three months old and he's such a wonderful baby. The reason we picked Zion is because we want a strong name for our child. One day my husband came across someone wearing a Zion National Park t-shirt. He came home and said what about Zion for a middle name? We looked up the meaning and instantly knew that this is the name we've been searching for. Zion's meaning is: sign, omen; excellent and use to refer to a Jewish homeland and heaven. It is also said to have a meaning of "chosen one". The name is of Hebrew origin. Everyone including our family loves the name Zion. They all said Zion is a strong, unique name, and fit our son very well. We have no regrets and we think this name will become more popular in the near future. MJO
I guess It's okay. It's one of those names where you kind of have to like exactly what the name represents. It's a cool name, and I like it 'cause It'starts with "Z", but that's me. I really can't make up my mind.
This is my son's name, but we spell it Leam. We also get the people who pronounce it Lean or Leem, or they spell it wrong, or have no idea how to speel it at all. But overall, we love it. he's the only one at his school with that name, so it makes things a lot easier.
My son's name is Zion, I love this name because it has a stong meaning.
I would like to name my daughter Zion, but have been getting strange looks from family. Is this name to masculine for a girl?
I'm 20 year old girl with the name Zion. At the begining I used to hate my name. I was even embarresed to introduce my name to othe's. And i've been always blaming my parents for giving me that name. Although some of my friends told me that Zion is a wonderful name, i've been hating it. But after knowing the meaning behind it, i started to be proud of my name. And now most people are telling me that i've got a nice name. And I'm grateful.
My baby, born July 1st of this year, is named Zion. I actually got my Zion from this street in Hartford called Zion Street. A street I used to see all the time on my way to his father's house before I got knocked up. Well, every time I'd look up out of the bus window, there that'sign would be. It was a sign! I always loved that name, but I wanted to have a reason, a personal reason to do it and that'street sign was a sign that I was meant to name my son Zion. I love this name'so much!

Zion is a very powerful name,I have a 8 month old son name Zion. I prayed for a name and this is the name that I heard from God. I love the name and the meaning. My son is unique and very special. He will grow up to be a powerful man of God. If you choose this name you can not care what othe's think of the name. Some people fear what they can't understand. Most people stare with amazement when I tell them my sons name,they in turn say that he is blessed.(which he is)
Zion is a strictly male name.....Zyon or Xyon can be female.......
Im naming my lil boy Zyien im 5 months pregnant and im not naming him anything else
My nickname is Zyon beacuse of my charcaters name from my comic. Most of my friends call me this and I really like it, the meaing of Zyon is something that has always made me feel special, and once I'move Out, I want to change my real name to Zyon.
My daughters name is Zion but I spelt it Xiahne since Zion was more masculine. This child is only a month old and she is already showing that'she is a blessing. She really is unique and is destined for great things.
My One year old Grandson is named Zion. My other grandson's name is TAkeo, but you don't have that name in your database.

My 4 yr. old son is Zion Amir. And he's joy and blessing. Everyone that comes in contact with him, loves his spirit and the power of the name, Z-I-O-N!
This is our son's name. My husband and I both liked the name but I had doubts before he was born and we came up with a short list of other names. But when he was born, he looked like a Felix. We're happy we stuck with this name!
I am 7 weeks pregnant and i am calling my baby Zion (irrespective of the gender), i am still contemplating on the'spelling though (Zion or Zyon).
My son is now 5months old and his name is Zyon people usually get his name confused with Dion or Zeon. I love the'stren'th in this name. Many people have spell his name as Xyon. Zyon is most definetly a unique name iand i have never come across or heard of a person named Zyon until this website.
Many children in Eritrea (North-East Africa) are named Zion, particularly girls. It's a beautiful name!
My boyfriend has really set his mind on naming our son or daughter zion. I didn't agree in the beginning I'must admit but as I read about the meanings behind the name I also fell in love with the fact of naming our first child zion would be a great blessing.
Zion, beautiful Zion! When I was six months pregnant I was sitting in church and the preacher was talking about Israel and ZionI'm. Instantly God said to me that Zion is what I should name my baby boy. Even if I were to have a baby girl I would still call her Zion.
My son is 12 and I had the name Zion picked before I knew the gender, and before I knew that it would be so popular. I was kinda hoping it would be more origional at the time. All I know is that this kiddo kicked like crazy when I played Marley on my belly, esp. the'song "Jammin'" when he'sang "Holy Mt Zion". That's where I got the name. I looked it up in the Bible and it meant "sunny" in Hebrew as well as other things like "promised land". He has suffered no grief for his name, in fact people love it. Later, I found that a friend had a granddaughter named Zion. It works either way. Beautiful, strong name.
