    Josie?

    Just wondering opinions on using this as a first name, rather than the full Josephine....and what you would pair it with? Thanks!

    I prefer it as a nickname. Josie is cutsy and kind of boring. I'd pair it with something longer and classic so she could have something to fall back on. Ideas

    Josie Bianca
    Josie Cecilia
    Josie Diana
    Josie Emmeline

    I, too, prefer it as a nn. I know a Josie but it's short for Josephine. Just Josie seems a bit childish to me. I think it could be short for Jocelyn or Josiane or Josepha, too... In general, I like Posey, Sephie, Sophie, and even Poppy better than Josie, personally, too.

    I like the pp's suggestion of Josie Olivia... what about:

    Josie Caroline
    Josie Juliet
    Josie June
    Josie Annabel
    Josie Felicity
    Josie Penelope
    Josie Beatrix
    Ashley
    twenty-something namenerd and aspiring novelist

    I also prefer it as a NN. Would be hard to grow into Josie as an adult.

    I don't think Josie is as "childish" as other "nicknames", I can see it working just fine on an adult.
