Ditto on Zoe, I had it picked out over 10 years ago!
I have watched so many names that I've really liked or picked over the last ten years all become popular.... I could list five or six without thinking.
That said, Zoe's a name I'd kind of decided I liked recently - grrr!
My advice? Go with it - I think Zoe Oz palindrome is something no one else will have! Besides, it's awesome ...
If first bub had lived she would have been Alexandrovna Oz. No-one would have had that.
As it is, Alexander has taken off, I know several young Alexs, Alecs, Xanders, but fortunately only one Lex - so far.

I think Alexander has always been a pretty consistently popular name. And it has been used throughout my family. Edward should've been Alexander Edward, not Edward Alexander as he was named.
I will give you the fact that had your first one lived and been given that name, that would've been unique. Then probably shortened to Alex....
I like the idea of the Zoe palindrome because no matter whether she changes her surname she's still got the oz there...! I will campaign for it!
I think it's just that there are so many people nowadays anything you think is original has been done millions of times before...
I have a cousin Alec! Who is only ten...
Stupid lj. The above comment was me too.
Any reason you didn't use it the first time around?
I just felt it had become too common, whereas Clara hadn't, and Clara's such a nice name. "Zoe Elizabeth" sounds nice though, doesn't it!
I was thinking Zoe Elizabeth, or to go with Zoe Josephine Elizabeth. Joseph/Josephine is a bit of a semi-tradition second name for the family. And Zoe J. E. Oz keeps the palindrome :)
