  • "This is my name! People are constantly leaving off the "y." I've never really thought of it as strange looking until I read this page and saw it spelled out a million times haha but I guess that could happen with any word. I kinda think my mom invented this spelling though haha if you go to and search "Zoey," it becomes a thing like right when I was born (July 16, 1995). She heard the name on a radio program called Rabbit Ears Radio during the story of King Midas and his daughter, Zo?. She loved the name and the meaning, but had no idea how to spell it, so she made it up!" Dec. 1, 2015: Report as inappropriate

May. 29, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "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."

  • "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.
