I really like Zoe.

I'm not so keen on Willow. It's very 'now' & I wouldn't personally choose it unless she's likely to be willowy of build.

Zoe it’s a lovely name it’s Greek and means life 😃 plus it’s my name so I’m bias

Oooo I’ve always loved Willow, but I’ve been called Zoe for 43 years and love my name.

Zoe for me. Willow is, as pp have said, very now and also a lot of pressure if she turns out not to be skinny!

I have a Zoe and think it's a great name. Still fairly unusual but not weird, everyone can spell it. Willow is lovely but a hostage to fortune if she turns out not terribly ethereal (my Zoe is definitely not a Willow)

Zoe by a million miles.

Not a fan of Willow at all.

CruCru Tue 10-Oct-17 23:31:38

Definitely Zoe. Would you spell it Zoe or Zoë?

I think Zoe / Zoë would pigeonhole the child a lot less.

Willow. Great name. Zoe is boring (imo)

Both lovely, I agree Zoe is more timeless and would suit a wider range of people, so I vote that. Willow is beautiful though.

Zoe though I prefer the spelling Zoey

MiriAmmerman Wed 11-Oct-17 08:26:41

Zoë. Absolutely lovely. Have never been keen on Willow, and it’s more ‘now’. I think it will date more than Zoë. (For instance, I know a Zoë in her 40s, one in her 20s, and one who will be 2 in November. I know a much larger number of Willows, but they are all under 8).

TonicAndTonic Wed 11-Oct-17 08:29:29

Zoe is lovely - I'd use it if it hadn't been used in my family already.

Tbh all the Willows that I know are cats!

Another vote for Zoe, it's a lovely name! :-)
