Future Daughters: Catherine "Cate" Ophelia, Isobel "Zoe" Theophania, Veronica "Vera" Seraphine
Future Sons: Alexander "Olek" Caspian, Dominic "Nico" Valentine, Benjamin "Jamie" Marius

Trying to give the benefit of the doubt that you're not just being purposefully dense for the LOLs, so here goes.
Zoe, pronounced Zo-ee is correct. Definitely two syllables. Toe, Joe, etc. are not greek names, like Daphne, Penelope, Phoebe, Ariadne, ad nauseum, all of which end in an e that's pronounced EE.
Zoey is a more modern mispelling, probably just to make the pronunciation more clear.Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.

Zoe as one syllable is some Americanized misspelling of if there is some historical backing to it. But Zoe, "Zo-E" is indeed the correct and accurate pronunciation.
Also from mei_mei's post, still laughing at the thought of Phoebe being pronounced one-syllable "Fowbe"
Now on to Zoe! My darling furbaby is named Zoe Lynn or Zoe Marie on occasion, but I agree with the short sounds those are more cutesy than substantial. Some names I'd love to hear (I kind of went all over the place with style):
Zoe Brooke (Short, but I actually really like this)
Zoe Lucille (LOVE)
Zoe Gabrielle (Also love!)
