"My son is named Joey, really Joseph, but I call him Joey. He's very special. He was very sick at birth, but made it through it for a reason. The reason being, if you know him, you are blessed. He is kind, considerate, understanding, and loved by everyone he meets. He cares about people, babies, the elderly, and everyone in general. It's hard to find someone so genuine. So if you find a Joey like my Joey you are very lucky." Apr. 16, 2007:
"My husband's name is Joey, short for Joseph. Although it seems like a youthful nickname at first, it really grows on you. I can't imagine his name being anything else. I love it." Jul. 20, 2005:

"My parents named me Joel but called me Joey. It was very, very confusing for teachers, employers, etc. I legally changed it to Joey when I got married (with my mom's blessing...my dad always wanted Joey on the birth certificate anyway since they didn't like Joseph). The advantage is hardly anyone else uses Joey - everyone goes by Joe. The disadvantage is if you don't like Joe (I don't), you'll have to battle people who automatically shorten it. There are better names than Joey if you ask me. I don't hate it but I don't love it either." Nov. 30, 2009:
