    Middle Name for Zoe?

    I've been crushing on Zoe for a while now. I have a very close family friend who is like a grandmother to me named Zoe. She's the most classy and generous person I've ever met. Its probably why I like Zoe so much. So... I would like to honor her, but all the names on my list don't flow well. Pretty much all of them are two syllables so it sounds weird. Can you guys help me? What's your favorite middle for Zoe?

    Thanks!
    @dindlee- I love- Zoe- Ophelia, Cecilia, Kassiani, Ianthe, Cassandra, Miranda, & Anastasia (Love this name but I can't use it because it's my aunt and cousin's name).
    @bibliophile- Zoe- Natalia, Delilah, Eudora, Gregoria (never heard this one before but I love it!), Ianthe, Rosalind/Rosamund (love both), & Azalea.
    I had Ianthe on one of my character naming lists, because I thought no one else would like it, I'm glad someone else does!
    Thanks again!

    How many syllables are in the surname and what's its first initial? With Zoe, I'd definitely choose something other than a two or more syllables to have a different syllable count for each part of the name like 1-3-2 or 1-2-3. The middle name would have different syllable sounds than the one syllable Zoe and the last name.

    I'd also look at the initials. You wouldn't want to spell anything like for example ZOO or ZIP. Since you're honor someone with the first name, why not go daring for something in the middle? I often suggest a name that strikes your fancy that's daring but you're not brave to use as a first name. I hope that helps.
