In Greece, it's often used as a nickname to Elizabeth. It's commonly associated with actress and TV personality Zeta Makrypoulia (who, interestingly, was born Agoritsa Zoe).

As is with many other Z-syllable names, Zeta is sleek, streamlined, modern and industrious-looking, also futuristic and zingy. It's absolutely lovely, but I would hesitate in using this name for an actual baby girl since the only association is basically Catherine Zeta-Jones. It's like how I think Winslet could make a promisingly adorable name, but people would think you really loved Kate Winslet that you named your baby after the actress.
