"Well, my name is Josı (Hos - ay ...really get the 'S' in there when saying it). I've been called Josie, Joyce, Jos, and even Joe, because the teacher was too lazy to pronounce correctly. But there have been the few who have pronounced it correctly. Its a fantastic name to have - considering that few people have it in the UK (at least where I'm around) and I love the meaning behind it - very true of myself!" Jan. 14, 2007:
