- Comments and insights on the name Zoey: | Edit
I actually prefer this spelling to Zoe because it gets mispronounced a lot less often.
I like different spellings, weird ones, like Zowii, Zowie, Zoii, etc. I love unique baby names :) I do like Zoey though. My parents considered naming me it, but chose Kaitlyn instead...too bad for me.
- Personal experiences with the name Zoey: | Edit
It's my dog's name and we're pretty sure she has ADD. She's a really weird dog. I think she probably ruined the name for me, including other forms like "Zoe" and "Zoie." No offense to all you Zoeys out there.
Zoey It's most like my nickname. My name is really strange and unique:) ZOEYLINHE. a combination of Zoey and Lynn. I love it:) pronunciation: SOEYLIN.
