Zenaida is lovely. Along with Zenobia and Zoraida, it would be an impactful and one-of-a-kind unique longer-syllable Z- girl name (VS. typically two-syllable Z girl name standard Zoe, and maybe Zora, Zoya, Zia on the more unusual side).

To me, Zenaida flows the smoothest of the three unusual options when said out loud, like a skateboard gliding across a smooth surface, and I think it strikes the middle balance between regal earthy elegance (Zenobia) and a more zippy energetic glamorous vibe (Zoraida). All three are just infinitely cool names, IMO.
