Udi Cain

My husband's great grandfather was Isaac Peters (originally Peterofski or
Pieterofski) but on his headstone his Hebrew name is given as Tzodok.

Personally, I have never heard of this Hebrew name. Can anyone who is
expertise, please enlighten me.
The first time it is being shown in the bible, in Shmuel B' chapter 8 /17:
"And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, were the
priests; and Seraiah was the scribe;"

Best regards.
Udi Cain.
