The meaning of Zichri in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

zik'-ri (zikhri, meaning uncertain):

(1) Levites: (a) grandson of Kohath (Exodus 6:21, where some the King James Version editions read wrongly, "Zithri"); (b) an Asaphite (I Chronicles 9:15), called "Zabdi" in Nehemiah 11:17, where the Septuagint's Codex Alexandrinus has Zechri = Zichri, but the Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus other names; see ZABDI, (4); (c) a descendant of Eliezer (I Chronicles 26:25).

(2) Benjamites: (a) I Chronicles 8:19; (b) I Chronicles 8:23; (c) I Chronicles 8:27; (d) Nehemiah 11:9.

(3) Father of Eliezer, who was one of David's tribal princes (I Chronicles 27:16).

(4) Father of Amasiah, "who willingly offered himself unto Yahweh" (II Chronicles 17:16).

(5) Father of Elishaphat, a captain in Jehoiada's time (II Chronicles 23:1).

(6) "A mighty man of Ephraim," who when fighting under Pekah slew the son of Ahaz, the king of Judah (II Chronicles 28:7).

(7) A priest in the days of Joiakim (Nehemiah 12:17); the section, Nehemiah 12:14-21, is omitted by the Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus with the exception of "of Maluchi" (Nehemiah 12:14); Lucian has Zacharias.
