  • "It's my name as well and I absolutely love it, mainly because it's not very common. The one thing that annoys me is how people pronounce it - it has an S in it not a Z so it's pronounced JO-SEE!!! Seriously why don't people get this? I correct anyone who pronounces it Jo-zee or any other way they say it. Is it so hard to understand? Anyway, it's a great name." Nov. 21, 2014: Report as inappropriate

For instance whenever the adults pronounce my name "jozie" I just think that make the adults sound like a French, trust fund turd! Seriously!

  • "My name is Jossianny, and i go by Jossi (Like Jo-Z) for short.Sometimes my friends just call me "jos". Ive always just gone by jossi since jossianny is kinda odd and for some reason people always go " did you say jossianna?" which is rather annoying.Funny because you think it would be easier once it was just jossi but even then people still say it wrong. Ever since i was younger i would tell my mom that i was going to legally change it to "Josie" since it would just be easier and that way maybe people didnt pronounce it Jocie you know like hosey? which i dont get.The main reason for wanting to change it was that as long as i can remember i hated the fisrt day of class because in every single period the teacher would pause stare at the roll call sheet and then go " jocieann?" and then i would say that i go buy just Josie and the teacher would then say " Oooo like josie and the pussycats and laugh as if ive never heard that one before. but now i figure its unique and i dont think ill change it. Ive never met another person named Jossianny or just plain josie for that matter. And to think that my mom only named me that because she heard it in a spanish soap , and liked the way it sounded."

  • "Personally, I hate the name Josie. Its an immature name and I cringe when I hear anyone over the age of 10 with that name. My name is Josephine, which I like; but unfortunately people always shorten my name to Josie no matter how many times I tell them not to. Overall, Josie seems like the perfect name for a young girl, but it's not very professional when you become an adult. Not to mention it sounds like a nick-name, like the parents couldn't be bothered to give their child a full name." Jan. 21, 2013: Report as inappropriate
