  1. Zosimus is the middle name of my son 🙂 His first name is Kaleb (I’m not usually one for re-spellings, but it’s an anagram of my hubby’s name, Blake) and despite everything going against our little angel, he survived and is quite the feisty little fighter to this day. I found this name while searching the Internet for names meaning “survivor.” It’s different and some people think it’s downright strange, but Zosimus has SUCH meaning for us. We don’t care what others think!
