    It may be a coincidence. A name that they liked, but they couldn't remember that they used it before.


    Unless they deliberately bring it up ("Van Smoot? Hey, Marshall and Lily got married at Van Smoot House! Any relation?") I'm going to say it's a coincidence.

    I could see them weaving it in. I don't recall if this was mentioned in the Marshall/Lily wedding episode, but the Van Smoot family could be a wealthy New York family (who donated the Hall or something). I could see the gang later finding out that Zoey is an heiress to the Van Smoot family fortune. And then they find out that Zoey rejected the inheritance, which would fit nicely with her rebellious character.
