  • "Normally this is a boy's name borne by various men of all ages (boys, young men, middle-aged dads, and old grandads), and when it comes to girls most parents would use Josephine, Josepha, Josette, or Josie. Recently, though, American actress Soleil Moon Frye of 'Punky Brewster' fame and her actor husband Jason Goldberg have had a second daughter, Jagger Joseph Blue, in addition to their elder daughter Poet Sienna Rose, born in 2005."
