Thoughts on Zoe? Is it a bit dated / 90s? Do you know any?

Lovely name. I know one age 12.

Love it. I see it as classical, not dated!

I know several in their mid 40s. I was very popular in the mid 70s! I do know a few younger ones, around 10 and a couple in their 30s.

I know a five year old Zoe & a forty year old one. I think it’s pretty timeless.

Love it smile

I love it. Definitely one on my shortlist. A pretty recognised name but not too common either.

MiniMaxi Fri 02-Apr-21 21:22:40

Biased. Love it!

I like it a lot, though I prefer it spelled Zoë.

love it .
Our Zoe is 18 and loves her name.

I know 2 under age 4

Lively and a classic

Lonely name.

It does say 90s to me but I think 90s names are coming back. I like the Zoey spelling too.

Lovely. As someone said, it's timeless. It has a nice meaning too.

CarnationCat Fri 02-Apr-21 22:09:06

I don't think it's timeless. Definitely outdated.

BettyOBarley Fri 02-Apr-21 22:09:11

I like it! Don't think of it as dated.
There is a Zoe in my 7yo DDs class.

AnneFuckingKirrin Fri 02-Apr-21 22:13:39

It’s definitely a classic.
I really like it.

RefuseTheLies Fri 02-Apr-21 22:13:58

There's a Zoe in my 5 y/o daughter's class. I love the name.

IHaveBrilloHair Fri 02-Apr-21 22:14:17

Love it.

MrsFin Fri 02-Apr-21 22:15:37

Love it, but it should be Zoë really. The dieresis over the e shows that both vowels are pronounced. So Zo-we. Without the dieresis the pronunciation should be Zow (as in low, not cow).

IamnotwhouthinkIam Fri 02-Apr-21 22:20:13

It's okay, not a particular fave (I tend not to like "ee" ending names though) - but I don't think it's dated, I've met a few of different ages. I personally prefer the sound of Eve which has the same meaning.

IamnotwhouthinkIam Fri 02-Apr-21 22:21:23

Or Xanthe if you want the "z" and "ee" sounds is also lovely imo.

StarsOnAMat Fri 02-Apr-21 22:23:29

I know a ten year old Zoe. I wanted to use it if I had a girl but I have two boys.

sarah13xx Fri 02-Apr-21 22:25:43

Lovely - there’s a Zoe at my school and she’s a really nice wee girl. My best friend growing up was also called Zoe and she was the only Zoe I knew. Very short and simple yet nice!
