    Don't go easy? Oh no girl, I think you just opened yourself up for some mean comments! I will just say I don't care for those names on girls. However, with the huge trend of people giving traditionally male names to their baby girls, I'd say a female Orlando or Josiah wouldn't be completely out of left field these days.

    If I were being dangled over a pit full of hungry lions I would reluctantly choose Josiah.

    You'd have to feel really strongly about them to use either I think, as you will likely get a lot of negative reactions to it.

    If going with Orlando I'd be tempted to change it to Orlanda. Josiah would maybe work as Josiana. But I realise you weren't asking for ways to feminise them, I just guess I just have a lot of trouble picturing them working for girls.
