No. Although the consonant it does derive from is quite commonly vocalized in many languages including varieties of English.

Re: Guess the Word in Germanic Conlangs

Hints:
Final <z> was neither originally final, nor *z.
<o> was not present in PGmc but is derived from a sound that was.
It is composed of two morphemes, neither of which is a case ending.
