A fun variation of the long-established Zoe, Zoey is a feminine name that shares its Greek origins. Meaning "life," Zoey's lineage stretches as far back as the Late Antiquity when it was first spelled Zoë and held everlasting promise. Some say its early popularity stemmed from its ties to eternal life, with many parents bestowing it in the hopes their child would enjoy a long, fruitful existence. As a translation of the Hebrew Eve, such beliefs are unsurprising when one considers Zoë's connection to the famous biblical figure. Originating from a name that means "source of life," perhaps Zoey may continue to be a sweet oath for your little one beckoning sustenance to last a lifetime.
