Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
How about a name with a ‘z’ in it this week? Z is a rare letter in many European languages, with only a restricted set of contexts in which it’s an appropriate way to represent that particular sound. So it’s always interesting to find a name with a ‘z’ in it.
Have you come across this name before, in Germany or elsewhere? Have you any thoughts of its origin? Let us know!
