Comments about the name Zoey
Comment left Feb 20, 2013: "I'm due in 4 weeks and plan on naming my only daughter Zoey. I love how it is very different and rarely heard of. We would like to spell it just Zoe but sounding like Zoey. I choose this short name because she will have a last name thats 11 letters long. It makes sense to have a short name whether it's 3 or 4 letters. The last name would just torture them forever." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Jul 06, 2011: "My daughters name is Zoey. I added the y because I did not want her to spend her whole life getting asked of her name was Zo. If you are considering this name, please add the y at the end and do not spell it Zoe to save your child a life time of explaining. Plus oe looks as plain as the name Ann. My daughter Zoey Nicole was born on 4/30/2011" (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Jun 03, 2011: "I think to compare it to Zoey 101 is pretty dumb. Nobody is even going to know what that show is like two years from now. Zoey with a y is much more feminine. Who wants a name with only three letters?" (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left May 02, 2011: "We are naming our girl Zoey. The 'y' is not pointless. I've known people who've spelled it without the 'y' and are amazed at how many people don't pronounce the 'e' so they always get called Zo. I was going to spell it Zoe before hearing that and my husband wanted to add the 'y' to make it more feminine. I'm glad we decided on the Zoey spelling." (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Jan 16, 2011: "I'm 7 months pregnant and we wanted a name that no one has and because she is "unique", we decided on Zoey. We were going to spell it Zoe, but her brothers decided to add the "y" at the end." (Report as inappropriate)
Comment left Dec 12, 2010: "I'm 6 months pregnant and always wanted to name my daughter something that was fun and unique, but that people would know what it was and how to pronounce it. My husband and I just decided on the name Zoey and love it. It's perfect." (Report as inappropriate)

Comment left Sep 23, 2010: "Zoey is my 5 month old and I love this name. I named her after Zooey Dechannel but my Zoey's dad thought it sounded too much like zoo with a y. It does get confusing with my cousin Chloe but she's adorable as well." (Report as inappropriate)
