I'm kicking off my series of names from The Waltons with Grandpa, also known (occasionally) as Zeublon, or Zeb.
|Actor Will Geer as Zebulon Walton|
in Zeb's final episode. Will Geer died
before the next season began filming.
I personally favour the shortened version, Zeb, which is what Grandma Walton calls Grandpa on the rare occasion she doesn't call him "Old Fool" or some other cute nickname. The name has never ranked in the top 1000 in the US, which is a bummer.
Famous Zebuluns: Zebulun Pike, the guy for whom Pike's Peak is named.
Fictional Zebulun/Zebulons: Just Grandpa Walton, so far as I can tell.
My Zebuluns: Not so much.
Do you know any Zebuluns? Did I miss anyone obvious?
