The last letter is not "He", it is sure "Kof" (you should just prolong down
the left line of it).
The first Tsadok was a cohen during the time of the King David. (look the
second book of Samuil, 15,24)

Subject: Tzdok as grandfather's name

Dear Genners:
My grandfather was born in Mir, Belarus. The Hebrew name on his
grave is tzade, dalet, vav, he. The family always pronounced this Tzdok. I
thought a tzodk was the term for a learned, righteous man, not a name. Has
anyone heard of this as a name? How should it be pronounced?
Thank you for your help.
