    I do like Nina. But if you rather have a name that isn't two syllables....and isn't too popular....

    Alexandra (currently #76) Nicknames : Allie, Alex, Andy, Alexa
    Emmeline (not in top 1000) Nicknames : Emmy
    Susannah (not in top 1000) Nicknames : Susie, Suse, Sanny
    Caroline (currently #80) Nicknames : Carol, Carrie
    Penelope (currently #125) Nicknames : Penny, Nell
    Beatrice (currently #691) Nicknames : Bea/Bee, Triss

    I think those would all work Zoe. Now if you wanted 1 syllable names....its much harder to get nicknames out of them. But I think the following might still work with Zoe.

    Blair (currently #872)
    Rose( currently # 261) Could also use the nickname "Rosie".
    Wren (not in top 1000) Could always use the nickname "Birdie".
    Jade (currently #112)
    Belle (not in top 1000)

    I love Nina & Cora! And Zoe! I have an Owen and these are all on my list for potential sibs.

    Here are some 1 and 3 syllables ideas:

    Maeve
    Gwen or Gwendolen nn Gwen
    Amelie
    Beatrix
    Emmeline
    Matilda
    Miranda nn Mira
    Milena nn Mila
    Penelope nn Penny/Poppy/Nell
    Rosalind
    Rhiannon
    Pearl
    Sage
    Annabel
    Althea nn Thea
    Mattea nn Tea
    Aurora nn Rory
    Arya
    Juniper
    Vanessa nn Nessa

    I could go on and on so I'll stop. A few more 2 syllables ideas though:
    Esme, Phoebe, Mira, Mila, Etta, Enid, Leda, Greta, Hazel, Nora, Oona, Lyra, Kira.... sorry but you barked right up my alley! Good luck.
    Some current considerations:

    Cora Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Hazel Miranda | Margot Eliza | Sylvie Coraline | Vivienne Esme
    Archer Daniel | Callum Sawyer | Emmett Sebastian | Ezra Byrne | Leo Vincent | Rhys Anderson

    I think both names are current! Both sound great with Zoe. I have recently started liking Nina since my little girl named all her dolls Nina. However, Cora is so sweet and beautiful. My vote is Cora!

    If you smooth Nina and Cora together you get:

    Coriana
    Corinne
    Corina
    Oriana
    Ora ( part of Cora )
    Nia ( part of Nina )

    I like Cora, it comes from the Latin root of heart. It's strong, commanding, but feminine at the same time.

    As an alternative to Nina, what about Mina? It's usual (in America, anyway) but feminine.
