What is the general opinion on this? It would be a sibling to Eve - would the fact that Zoe has the same meaning and may even come from the name Eve put you off using them? Or any other short name suggestions? Thanks smile

I didn't notice the post under mine about short names!!

I like Zoe. It goes fairly well with Eve. The root/meaning wouldn't put me off.

I prefer Chloe or Zara though, to go for the most obviously similar names.

I love it. I think it's quite cute that they have the same meaning and I think Eve and Zoe sound really good together as sisters. Both strong but feminine names.

Zoe is a fine name.

Camelhump you pedant grin

Hypocritical, moi? Probably...

Zoe is a great name, doesn't it mean life/ full of life?

BikeRunSki Fri 24-Jul-15 07:35:28

I like it. It is my sister's name and I was always envious of it, much cooler than my name. Ironically, she has been known by a nickname all her life.

My DD is Zoe (no dots!) and we have had very complimentary responses. It's normal but not too common. I have read on here that some people think it is a bit dated, though. I think it goes nicely with Eve.

BikeRunSki Fri 24-Jul-15 07:37:08

But Camel is right about the dots (umlat. Don't know how to do one on here though).

It was hugely popular in the mid 70s (my above mentioned sister was one of 8 in her school year, there were a few in mine) and well due a come back.

Yes, camel is right of course

It's a lovely name and sounds fine with Eve. Most people won't know the meaning of either name or ever really consider it so they're fine to use togther. They sound quite nice together actually!

Love it. Goes nicely with eve.

I LOVE Zoe, my DP has vetoed for DC2 unfortunately as he thinks it's a cat's name (I did have a lovely cat called Zoe to be fair).

sugar21 Fri 24-Jul-15 11:52:49

I have a Zoe and also an Evie so yes nice names

Ipushedmygrannyaffabus Fri 24-Jul-15 12:39:20

Aw thanks, glad it's had a positive response! I am also a grammar pedant wink - I just don't know how to do the umlaut on here! smile

It's not an umlaut, it's a diaeresis.
