Pronunciation sadness : (
Have any of you ever encountered this problem? I've loved the name Zoe ever since I was about nine, but I thought then that it was pronounced (zo), as in Joe. Then I discovered the real pronunciation, and it took me awhile to fall in love with it again. The last couple of weeks, I've been entertaining the thought that I could use the French pronunciation of Zoé, which I thought was (zo-ay). Just goes to show you how much I know about French. Anyway, today I figured out the French pronunciation is more along the lines of (zoo-ee), and my hopes have been dashed yet again : ( So do any of you know of a legitimate name that would have such a pronunciation (zo-ay)? Thanks.
P.S. Would also like to hear your GP pronunciations : )John Sebastian-Damian Joseph-Luke William-Peter Stephen-Charles Dominic-Blaise Caspian
