greek
Zô > Zōḗ

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “zô (ζῶ) zōḗ (ζωή)”, meaning ”to live, a living, property, life”. Zōḗ is a hellenization of the Hebrew name "Eve", which means "To live" (latin: vita qua vivimus). Zoe and its variants are used a lot since 1980 and especially amongst Christians of Eastern Europe. In fact is a calque of the classical Hebrew name (khavá, “Eve”). It was the name of a third century martyr venerated in the Orthodox Church. Saint Zoe of Rome († ~286) was a noblewoman, married to Nicostratus, a high Roman court official.
