    A Man named Zoe

    I was watching TV the other night and, amongst several Indian or Middle Eastern or some such names, there was a man named Zoe. He was probably in his 30s and a businessman. I just thought I'd share.

    Most interesting other name on the show -- Kout, pronounced like coot. She was an older woman.

    Hi Dantea, hope you're well. Interesting. Did he pronounce it one syllable like "zoe" or two syllables?
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    Oh, I forgot to say. I said it like ZOH (one syllable) but still...you know he's been called Zoe (zoh-ee) so often!

    With one syllable, it seems so much like Joe, Moe, Bo, etc. that it doesn't seem so terribly feminine to me. Also, perhaps because I've met so, so many boys named Zachary, the Z beginning seems quite masculine (tho I like it for either gender.)
