I can't decide between the name Zoey or Aurora. Please help me to decide.

Not Zo ee ee

Aurora is the sound of a dog chewing a toffee so it's Zoe for me.

Looks like Zoey is the choice at the minute. My dd really likes it. I like aurora mainly because I like the nn Rory.

Oysterbabe Sun 13-Dec-15 17:41:29

Zoe. No y.

celtictoast Sun 13-Dec-15 17:45:55

I prefer Aurora.

Rory is a gorgeous nickname for Aurora.

Like Zoe too but agree it's better without the Y.

IguanaTail Sun 13-Dec-15 19:50:12

Don't put a y on it. She will have to spell it every day for her whole life.

villainousbroodmare Sun 13-Dec-15 19:50:13

Both lovely but I'd certainly drop the y on Zoe.

Sophronia Sun 13-Dec-15 19:53:58

Zoe spelled this way.

IguanaTail Sun 13-Dec-15 19:55:00

With two dots on the e Zoë

Although I too like the nn Rory!

Thank you for all your answers. I never thought the y would be a big deal as our surname is one you have to spell. But if I pick Zoe/y it will be something I really think about as I hate spelling my name all the time. It would be unfair on dd2 to have to spell both her names.

Zoe no y

rocket74 Sun 13-Dec-15 22:22:01

I like Zoey and I don't mind the y.
Don't like Aurora - I think it's too defining - hippy skirts and dream catchers etc. Airy fairy insubstantial characters in books get called Aurora.

MyBootsAreMuddy Sun 13-Dec-15 22:22:06

Zoe y

Coral2094 Sun 13-Dec-15 23:37:28

I only know great Zoes

Aurora is lovely too though and nickname Rory is wonderful!

SilverOldie2 Mon 14-Dec-15 14:11:49

Zoe no y

I much prefer Aurora

AmusingSpoonerism Mon 14-Dec-15 14:30:33

Another vote for Zoe no y here (I'm someone who has to spell both names, don't do it)

CakeRattleandRoll Mon 14-Dec-15 15:03:23

Zoe gets my vote too.

MrsCaecilius Mon 14-Dec-15 16:18:53

Definitely no 'y' on Zoe unless you want her to have to spell it out to everyone she meets.

Personally I think Aurora/ (Rory nn) is prettier. Zoe's a bit plain.
