Josette Origin and Meaning

The name Josette is a girl's name of French origin meaning "Jehovah increases".

One of the group of French 'ette'-ending names that emigrated to this country in the last century, though never as popular as some others, such as Claudette and Paulette--it did have a little six-year flurry here between 1967 and 1973. Josette may be feminine and flirty, but, given the choice, most parents today would prefer Josephine.

I'd never really given this name much thought before, but the more I do, the more I love it! My name is Josephine, so it would be a beautiful way for my name to share a connection with my future child's without giving them the same one as me.

Me too.

headintheclouds Says:


Josette is a recent name crush of mine. I love the nickname Josie and the name Josephine, I love the -ette endings of names like Juliette, Claudette. The combination of these two elements make for a darling, chic, stunning impactful name that has the bonus of being truly unusual but still accessible. This would also be a really sweet middle name IMO.
