The most popular spelling of Zoe has a Y. Zoey is Greek for “life,” and to the early Christians, the name appropriately represented eternal life. Like Chloe, Zoey has a bright –ee sound at the end that gives it a modern vibe. There’s been no shortage of Zoeys or Zoes on TV–you’ll find Zoe on Sesame Street, Zoey Brookson on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101, Zoë Washburne on Firefly and Zoe Barnes on House of Cards. Actress Zooey Deschanel spells the name with an extra O, but it’s pronounced the same.
