Meaning of ZILCH


What Does ZILCH Mean?

ZILCH means "Nothing". The origin of the term ZILCH is uncertain, but it probably stems from the use of ZILCH as a surname for an insignificant person (especially Joe Zilch) in the 1920 and 1930s. (The most commonly cited person called Zilch is Mr. Zilch, who was a comic character in the US magazine "Ballyhoo" in the 1920s.)

The term ZILCH has since come to mean "nothing". Based purely on how it sounds, ZILCH is said to have German or Yiddish origins, but no sources offer the root word for this claim. (Of note, however, the surname Zilk is common in Austria.)
