also what middle name?

Kayzr Tue 09-Jun-09 14:28:48

Without the y!

MakemineaGandT Tue 09-Jun-09 14:30:09

Without. Of course.

bumpybecky Tue 09-Jun-09 14:31:11

I've got a Zoe Elisabeth

don't like Zoey though

nigglewiggle Tue 09-Jun-09 14:31:46

Def without.

It lends itself to lots of middle names. Do you have any contenders?

GooseyLoosey Tue 09-Jun-09 14:32:23

Without! It looks like a misprint for "Joey" with it.

boodleboot Tue 09-Jun-09 14:34:02

my friend is called Zoe Marie which i quite like. i really like Zoe Elizabeth now bumbybecky has mentioned it and i quite like Zoe Sian...

i wasn't sure if it had a Y on end or not

Sorry but the voice of dissent is here.....grin
I like it with. Only as it is a bit different.
There's an actress called Zoey Deschanel (I think?).

Zoey - the girl will spend her entire life saying 'no, Zoey with a y'.

blondissimo Tue 09-Jun-09 14:39:28

Sorry just googled her and it's Zooey Deschanel. Now I am just thinking elephants...........

Fimbo Tue 09-Jun-09 14:39:32

I like it spelt Zoe but think its quite hard name to find a second name to go with it.

Zoe Nadine

Zoe Louise

Mmm not sure of the above

hongkongzoe Tue 09-Jun-09 14:40:36

I'm called Zoe (with two dots over the e)... my mother gave me the middle name Barbara blush....don't use Barbara whatever you do! grin

boodleboot Tue 09-Jun-09 14:50:44

how about Zoe Belle?

Kayzr Tue 09-Jun-09 15:01:12

Ohhh I like that boodlebot

boodleboot Tue 09-Jun-09 15:05:47

what are the two dots over the e about hongkongzoe - is that a european thing?

i actually like the name Barbara, don't ask me why, i just think it is so retro that its cute. i had a great auntie Babs....lovely lady with pile of frothy blonde hair. grin

Zoe Belle really does seem to go nicely actually.... i'm going to write it down in my special

dingledangle Tue 09-Jun-09 15:16:59

Zoe May? or Zoe Mae?

boodleboot Tue 09-Jun-09 15:26:27

I love Mae as a middle name, which i know is an unpopular thing to admit on MN, and already have a Mae middle name for my DD1....

I've got a Zoe Elisabeth

don't like Zoey though

Couldn't agree more and I also have a new niece called Zoe Elizabeth which I think is just perfect!

dingledangle Tue 09-Jun-09 15:31:20

There is no reason why you cannot use it twice! Might give a nice bond for them when they are older?

MrsHappy Tue 09-Jun-09 15:32:45

Strangely I like it more with the Y. Not sure why...

I reckon it goes with lots of middle names
Zoey Anna
Zoey Clare
Zoey Marianne

What's not to like?

belgo Tue 09-Jun-09 15:41:22

Zoë wink

boodleboot Tue 09-Jun-09 16:01:12

i am very impressed that you know how to double dot your e belgo....

hongkongzoe Tue 09-Jun-09 16:34:25

Belgo How do you do that? Are you typing on a european keyboard?

Boodleboot I think its from the original greek spelling, the dots are called diareses, so you pronunce the e 'ee' iyswim. I like Zoe Belle... I get called that by a friend..

earthpixie Tue 09-Jun-09 16:40:27

I like it and Zoe Elizabeth is cute 70s retro somehow (I went to school with one)
