    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.

    I wrote a long description of why this was incorrect before finding mei_mei's post. Exactly that. Not sure if 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 Elizabeth
    Zoe Josephine
    Zoe Annabella
    Zoe Annabel
    Zoe Madeline
    Zoe Ariana
    Zoe Brooke (Short, but I actually really like this)
    Zoe Theodora
    Zoe Lucille (LOVE)
    Zoe Alice
    Zoe Gabrielle (Also love!)
    Zoe Noelle
