I think this could be version of some Muslim name.
Don't like it.
I don't know, but I must say a combo of the first 2 in your signature has been on my mind since you posted about this the other day! Zoemi. I know ppl on this site aren't a fan of made up names, but i think it's so pretty! Zoelie too, but less so for me.
@emsky-- I have been mulling Zoemi in my head for a while now. I just hesitate because it's made up, you know? It sounds so beautiful in Spanish too. Zoelie was the fiance's most recent suggestion, because he really doesn't like Zoe at all. I had convinced him, but I hate the idea of using a name he was convinced to use, ykwim?
Of course, no babies yet... just planning.
I want to like Zoelie. It's lovely written down and I wish there were more Z names - I tried to find a good one for my youngest daughter. Zoemi I'm not a fan of because it looks made up to me. Zoelie looks more like I name I just didn't know about. I do kind of trip on the pronunciation - zoh-el-ee, zoey-lee, zoh-uh-lee. I think I like zoh-uh-lee, the same cadence as Emily.
If it wasn't a first name, like middle name only contender, do you still think Zoelie/Zoemi is so bad?
