It also bears some resemblance in pronunciation to the feminine name Zoë, and has been used as an alternate spelling of that name.
Those bearing the name include:
Zooey Deschanel, an American actress and singer named after the Salinger novel. (She pronounces it as "Zoë.") with Conan O'Brien, at 3 minutes 59 seconds (To be precise, she pronounced it in that way in recounting a letter purporting to be written to her by her missing stuffed animal.)
