Evdokia and Evdoxia are two different names. Which one was the name of the first wife of Peter the Great?

I am not Russian and I do not speak Russian, but it seems to me that the correct version of the name is Евдокия, which should be pronunced 'Evdokia'. I do not know why the name is spelled 'Evdoxia" in so many entries. Is it possible that there is some confusion because the two Byzantine (Greek) names sound similar? In any case, I am not the one to tell, I am just sharing some second thoughts, after having asked the original question.
