"I am Josette Michelle. I hated my name as a child because I was frequently picked on for it. I preferred to go by nicknames and was called Jo or Josi. I now love my name. It is unique. I have never met another with the name, although I know there are a few of us out there." Aug. 4, 2019:
"My name is Josette Marie, and I am 51 years old. My mom met someone in France named Josette, and decided her first daughter would have that name. I was the lucky recipient. I pronounce my name with a hard "J", and the "s" like a "z"...Jozet. I was Joey when I was a child, but now most people call me Jo. I hate being called Josettie, and I'd rather no longer be referred to as Joey, but Jo or Josette is ok. I've met approximately 2 people named Josette. One of my favorite program growing up, was Dark Shadows, because Barnabus' love was called Josette." Apr. 11, 2015:
"We adopted a Josette when she was 3 years old. We asked her if she says it as Jo-zet or Jo-set and she said, "My name is Jo-sssset!" So, we have stuck with her pronunciation of the hard j sound and emphasized s. Her brother calls her "Jo-set-ee" which is also cute. She will not stand for shortened forms of her names ("I'm NOT Josie!") It is a very unique name and it fits her very well." Feb. 23, 2014:
"My name is Joucette..It is pronounced the same as Josette except spelled differently. Having my name spelled that way has always been a challenge for some people to pronounce but it makes me unique. I love the fact that not a lot of people have my name and it makes my name stand out..My nick names are Josie Jo Jo-Jo but I have always loved my name.. My nick names just help others out. I have never meet anyone who spells their name like mine.." Jul. 15, 2011:
"My 5 year old is Josette Marie. I think it is such a beautiful name. I do like older names. Most of the time we call her Jojo." Oct. 4, 2008:
"My 2 yr old is Josette. Mostly call her Josie or Jo. Liked Josephine, but this form is much more hip. In a book it once said the name 'Josette' is a name boys would want to go on a blind date with and girls would hear that name and be intimidated by. When we do call her Josette, it's normally jo-set. Some say her as ja-zet which is pretty too." Dec. 13, 2007:
"My name is Josette and I really like it. It's really very elegant although I mostly go by Josie. I've never met another Josette." Apr. 12, 2007:
"I like the name Josette, but people often say it with a hard "Joe"-like sound, rather than a soft "jho"-like sound." Sep. 12, 2006:
"My daughter is Josette. We receive many compliments on her name. She is sometimes called Josie. It is never mispronounced, occasionally people may drop one of the "t"s. We have never met another Josette." Jan. 4, 2006:

"My name is Josette. Our pronunciation
Is JO SET! I was born in 1947 and named after my father whose name was JOE. Through the years I have been called JoJo, Josie,Jodie and Jo. I prefer Jo, and only use Josette when signing official documents. For a very long time I was the only Josette in our small city,(Tallahassee, FL). Now there are 4-5 that I know of." Apr. 5, 2018:
"my name is Josette Lynn, I never actually really thought about my name, except that people always mispronounced it. I have only met one other Josette and that was when I was 14, I'm 44 now. Family calls me josie,jocee, jo, jo-jo, josetta, I don't like the nicknames and have asked my family to call me by my real name...Josette. I have grown to love it because it is unique." Mar. 1, 2015:
"I'm a 70 year old Josette. I hated my name when I was a girl until I read Little Women and identified so completely with Jo. My sister's name is Theora and because we were called Jo and Ted, people often needed to be told when we were not present, that our parents had two girls, not boys. Professionally, I am Josette, pronounced Jo-zett & personally I am Jo. I now love my name." Jan. 23, 2013:
"Jo zet (IMHO) I always liked my name especially the way it looks when written. Once when I was a young teen I met another girl named Josette; it was a surreal experience. Nobody could ever spell it, pronounce it or remember it. People tried to call me Josie, but I only tolerate being called Jo. Once I met somebody whose cat was named Josette, and I also met somebody whose mother was named Josette. Another time I was watching a Hardy Boys mystery episode and there was a character named Josette who'd been killed before the story opened. I really like my name, but a friend who lived in France for 10 years told me that in France only little old ladies and poodles are named Josette. He used to call me JoJo which he pronounced "Zho Zho" and it sounded very sweet. People sometimes assume I must be Filipino and in fact I did meet a Filipino woman with my name . . . ."

"My name is Josette. I'm 37 and while growing up I didn't know anyone with the name. Now I know about 5; and recently I met someone who has the same last name as me too. Some people mistakenly call me Josann. My friends & family call me: Josie, Jo, JoJo, JosieJo, Josetta, Jozo, Joes. I like the name alot" Jun. 12, 2010:
