    Zoe as a nickname for Isabel/Isobel?

    Okay, I know it's definitely a stretch, and I'm usually not one for non-traditional nicknames, but what do you think of Zoe as a nickname for Isabel/Isobel? (Isobel would probably make more sense.) Is it just too weird, or do you think it could work? It's not that different from Izzie...

    I think it's a huge reach. But then, I don't get a lot of the Elizabeth nicknames either.

    It feels contrived.

    I think (though I'm about to cringe at this), in order for this to work you'd need to use Izobelle/Izobel. Otherwise, it won't likely catch on. That being said, I suppose it's not too much different from Lily for Elizabeth or Poppy for Ophelia, Plum for Victoria, etc. You could always give it a try, and if it doesn't catch on, there are plenty of other nicknames.

    Another idea would be to uses Isabelle/Isabel/Isobel Zoe as a name. That way, even if it doesn't catch on, she'd simply be using her middle name as her first.

    They seem like 2 totally different names maybe Isobel Zoe and then you'll have a reason to call her zoe since its her middle name. Some other nicknames for Isobel could be Ibby or Isa.
