Opinions would be great.

I told my aunt and she likes it, but thinks it is a very ''early nineties'' name...?

And what middle names (2 or three syllable to go with surname Grey)

Will never date. It's fab.

I know what you mean seeker and I am not a fan of wacky spellings at all. But I guess when you have known someone a while it doesn't seem odd, and in this case I think quite pretty.

She doesn't have to put any more effort in to spell her name than I have to say, with a K and an e-r and an i-n-e!

My daughter is Zoe Susannah. She just turned 3. I love it, it's a name that is cute for a little girl but classic for an adult, and it's pretty timeless. I know a very few Zoes - an 8 year old, an adult, and my great aunty who dies aged 91 in 2001. It's never been massively popular but neither is it weird smile

BTW we also loved the meaning...we lost 4 pregnancies in all and as a result have a Benedict ('blessing') and a Zoe ('life') . Ben was called Benedict pre- Cummerbatch days....

Love it, actually, and surprised it isn't used more.
