This name is derived from Zacharias, the name of an Old Testament Prophet, as well as the father of John the Baptist in the New Testament.

Zaek Early Origins



The surname Zaek was first found in Austria, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name Zach became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal System and the nation.
