History, grad school, and gravestones!
As someone who comes from a long line of Zechariahs, I appreciate the Z's.Another good z-name is Zabdiel. There was a prominent Zabdiel Boylston in early Boston, and his name was taken by many relatives or admirers:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zabdiel_Boylston
If you're looking for a good book, I love Jennifer Lee Carrell's The Speckled Monster, which is about smallpox inoculations and features Zabdiel Boylston. It's sort-of-kind-of fiction — enhanced nonfiction, shall we say. But it's a great read.
