What’s in a name?

We hope you enjoyed Jacob’s 'What’s in a Name' blog post last week.

Jacob’s sister Josie followed 3 years later and her parents didn’t take long to decide her name. They  decided on the name Josie although the version Josy or Josie was never decided. After a very long labor, Mom was exhausted and let Dad choose the spelling and so Josie it was :)

According to babynamewizard.com Josie comes from Josephine and means ‘God will add’ in Hebrew. It’s pronounced JOH-zee and nicknames for Josie are Jo-Jo and Jo.

Famous real-life people named Josie:

Josie Maran, American fashion supermodel (born Johanna Maran)
Josie Bissett, American actress (born Jolyn Bissett)
Josie Loren, American actress

Josie in song, story & screen:

Josie and the Pussycats
Josie - song by Donovan
Josie - song by Steely Dan
Josie - song by Blink 182

This is Josie’s story and we would love to hear yours. Did you name your child Josie or any variation of the name? It is a fun name and Josie is lucky to called both nicknames Jo and Jo-Jo.

Was your child named after a family member? Celebrity? What was your process in selecting your child’s name? We would love to hear your "how I named my baby" story.

Stay tuned for another blog post of a name from a clients banner.

I look forward to hearing from you.
