    You guys say hillbilly like it's a bad thing!

    I also love the idea of Hannah-Jo. I also like the ideas of lengthening Jo to Josephine, Jolene, or Jocelyn. Jora, Jordan, Jory, Joanna, and Jolie are other nice alternatives. I've also heard of Joellen/Joella.

    I was at lunch one day discussing names with a co-worker and a stranger came up and started giving input to me on names (maybe she is a fellow berry, who knows!). She told me a long story about her painful labor 40 years prior, fights with her husband over the name, a car accident, yada yada but it ended with her daughter having the name "Jo Clara" (Josephine Clara) and her granddaughter going by "Jo Lauren" (Josephine Lauren). Anyway, at the end of this long story, the point is this is one way to get to Jo that maybe is less "hillbilly."

    My suggestion would be to go with Josephine, Johanna, or Jolene (as previously suggested) and use "Jo" as a nickname.
    You can call me Roxanne... and a proud new mother!

    I like the Jo-Ellen suggestion. I also agree that Jo works best with short names that sound like/are nicknames to start with.

    Kitty Jo
    Sophie Jo
    Carrie Jo
    Mabel Jo

    Jo-Belle
    Jo-Clare
    Jo-Faye
    Jo-Beth

    Or even a shortening like Roxanne suggested:

    Josephine Beatrice - Joby/Jo-Bee
    Josette Clarissa - Josie/Jo-C
    Johanna Laurel - Joelle/Jo-Elle
    ~Boys~

    Jory Leander Atticus, August Eli Benedict, Casimir Mordecai Stewart,
    Edmond John Meirion, Horatio Ethell Emery, Bram William Jasper,
    Julian Remy Charles, Vasiliy Lochlan Michael.


    ~Girls~

    Aira Rose ___, Eleni Fiorella Charlotte, Sylvia Sayuri Noor,
    Merit Eleanora Adelaide, Clover Elodie Seraphine, Bridie Scarlett Viola,
    Marguerite Cecilia Iris, Eilidh Clara Valentine.


    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    I like the idea of Josephine/Joelle/Jolie as a middle name too eg. Primrose Josephine... Rosie-jo. I think it will give her more options as an adult to grow into. I really like suggestion of Ella Josephine Ellie-jo... Or how about
    Willa-jo...Wilhelmina Josephine...
    Lily- jo....Lilian Josephine
    Ava-jo... Avalon Josephine
    Tilly-jo...Matilda Josephine
    Milly-jo.... Camilla Josephine
    Sunny-jo... Susannah Josephine (this one is my fave
