斑马泽佩


Explanation:
I assume this is a brand name or some product name, and "Zippy" is supposed to be the name while the brand or product is symbolized by the animal "zebra", or is in the style of zebra.

Zebra=斑马 while 泽佩 is a close transliteration of "Zippy".

The order of the words is reversed in Chinese to sound "real" Chinese.

Or if this is just a story about a "zebra", whether real or just a comic character, it's still the same, just "a zebra named Zippy", still the same translation.
