  • "My name is Jo. Yes, just Jo. Any middle name, any prefix or suffix. And I dislike it. No! I hate my name. I live with my name all life long, and people are always very surprised, when they hear my name and they say "You've got a boy name!". I spell my name Jo, not Joe, but it sounds really like a boy's name. And besides, it's too short. I feel so lackluster and inconspicious with this name. I'd like to be Josephine, it feeds to me and my age." May. 3, 2015: Report as inappropriate

      2 Neutral Comments

  • "My middle name is Jo. It's not short for anything. It's just Jo. I realize that there are a few parents out there that want to name their kid Jo, but I'd refrain from it being the first name. When I was younger and I told people my middle name, I was made fun of. Repeatedly. Putting it as a child's first name must be worse." Dec. 10, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "OMG titc ili i mean lol this is tottaly cool i luv it laugh out loud hehehehehehehe hahahahahahahaha" Feb. 25, 2008: Report as inappropriate
