Populate County name in another shapefile

I am trying to think of how to populate the County name (County Polygon shapefile) in my Zip Code shapefile (polygon).


The challenge is that the Zip Code polygons sometimes cross 2 or three County Boundaries. 


I have a Zip code Poly and I want to populate a field (county) within the Zip Code shapefile with the County that it resides in.  If the Zip crosses two Counties then I guess I would have to Split the County?  Does that make sense?


Any thoughts?
