If you actually look up the name on this website, it says it is a variant of Zoe, which means that they are technically the same thing just spelled differently, and also I am not against anyone who thinks Zoe is better (except for the person who said Zoey was crappy).

My name is Zoey with a "y" and I am proud of it. A lot of people say it's wrong but I disagree. I think it is better that people have different names, spellings, and opinions.

I love the name Zoey! It's my middle name and if I had a daughter she would be a Zoey! It is elegant and sweet. Zo-Zo is also a sweet nickname!

My name is also Zoey with a 'y' and I was born in 1972 so I was also wondering if I was the first one to have it spelt this way. It was completely unique for most of my life. I absolutely LOVE it and I thank my Mum for choosing to add a 'y' for me. ❤️️.

People who prefer the Zoe spelling, and I'm one, do so because it's the original spelling. Adding the Y makes it look like a gimmicky nickname. And saying that people don't know how to pronounce "Zoe" insults people's intelligence. The name "Chloe" has revived recently, and the "problem" doesn't seem to have come up in that instance. Most people who tune in to reality know how names are pronounced; for the rest, consider it a learning experience.

I'm currently pregnant and my daughter's name will be Zoey. With the Y. Zoey is a unique, futurist name. Without the Y it sounds like So.

I like this name. For those who are saying Zoey is a childish name, I don't get how Zoe is more mature, because it's just a different spelling. I like Zoey more than Zoe because Zoe looks like it rhymes with Joe, and Zoey looks like it rhymes with Joey... Makes sense to me.

I prefer Zoe, as this spelling looks too cute and immature. I don't love the name anyway; not a fan of the OH-ee sound.

My name is Zoey and it's never once occurred to me that people might think it's childish. I had no idea people thought of it that way! I am curious about something though; My mom heard this name on Rabbit Ears Radio when she was pregnant with me. They were telling the story of King Midas, and his daughter's name is Zoë. She'd never heard or seen the name before, but she loved it and its meaning so much that she picked it for me. But because she had been unfamiliar with it, she sort of made up the spelling: Z-O-E-Y. I was born July 16th, 1995, and I'm just wondering if anyone knows any Zoey's with a "y" that are older than that, since the spelling first cropped up in 1995! It'd be a pretty cool claim to fame to say that I'm the first Zoey with a "y."

I think Zoey with a 'y' is rather unique and beautiful. With the name spelled Zoe it looks rather plain and unattractive. Adding the y makes it more pleasing to look at while adding a spunky twist to the classic name :)

My daughter is called Zoey, and its with a Y because personally I like it better then Zoe. I don't think it's childish and it's unique as I've not really heard of Zoey's much. We have a few nicknames for her Zozo, Zoooieeee, and Zoolander. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's unique and spunky which is exactly my daughter down to a tee.

I like this spelling and the spelling Zoe, but only those two spellings. I hate Zoey 101 though.

Makes me think of Zoey 101 and the character Zoey in Pokémon who is the rival of Dawn. I prefer the spelling Zoe.

Zoey (and Zoe, to a slightly lesser extent) has always seemed unluckily infantile to me. Zoie is a bit better. All forms considered, Zooey is my favorite.

Well, this isn't a particularly famous bearer, but Zoey was the name of a doe from "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: the Movie," who serves as a substitute for Clarice in that adaption of the story. I love both Clarice and Zoey, and this name reminds me of the color yellow, for whatever reason, and sounds whimsical. It is on my list of names to perhaps one day use.

Zoe is a nice name when spelled correctly. It doesn't need that stupid Y attached to it.

An overly-cutesy version of the lovely Zoe. The -y ending completely ruins the name.

My name is Zoe, and I admit that while I love the name, I loathe and detest this spelling. It is childish and looks disgustingly Americanized. I'm rather disturbed at the rate that this name is catching up with "Zoe", what I believe to be the proper spelling, at such an alarming rate.

I absolutely love this name. I think it's quirky and pretty. Whenever I use this name for a character, she always has crazy dyed hair, a lot of ear piercings, and a sweet persona. I prefer it with a 'y' at the end because it looks like it would sound like zo-ee but the Zoe spelling just looks like it would be pronounced zo to me.

I believe "Zoey/Zoe" spelt any way is a beautiful name. I also think it is very creative to name a child and change the spelling, it makes them very unique. I know an "Emily" spelt "Emmelie" and I think it's pretty.

Someone said that this spelling of Zoey (sorry, I don't know how to do the trema) is defecation. I think it's a cool, American spelling. If I used it, I wouldn't be using the Y to be unique, I would use it because it would rhyme with Joey (my dad's name) and start with a Z like Zandry (my little sister's name). I love this name, and I like this spelling better than Zoe. I do think it is trashy to spell names in a way to be "unique", but I don't think it's wrong to spell your child's name like you like it.

I like Zoe better than this spelling. Also makes me think of Jamie Lynn Spear's character from "Zoey 101" - she is snotty and bratty on that show in my opinion. On the other hand I hope I didn't offend or deter anyone from using this name on my opinion. If you like this name or like the show then that's cool. :)

I love this name, whatever the spelling. My name is Zoiee. Spelled with two e's instead of two o's. I personally really like it. Very very unique.

This name has a whole lot of spunky with just a hint of attitude. `Spunky` because of the way it's spelled, and the `attitude` comes from the pronunciation AND the Z letter.

I think Zoë looks ridiculous without the tréma, and even more ridiculous with a "y" on the end. People say they add the "y" just to make it so people can pronounce it easier. Instead, why not just spell it properly with the tréma?

The lady I know of who named her daughter Zoey spelled it this way to avoid pronunciation problems and she didn't like having to put the 2 dots above the name Zoe. I think this spelling is great.

Are you out of your mind?! This looks "zoo"ey to me.

Honestly, what is wrong with these parents? Why do they think that altering the spellings of perfectly good names will somehow make it "unique"? It's pathetic and it's defecation on a perfectly good name.
