    My husband won't budge on Josephine!

    We are expecting baby girl #3 and my husband has been insisting on the name Josephine since we were expecting #2! He likes that it has Christian significance/meaning and how it sounds. I DON'T like that it is so popular! I have a popular name and always had at least one other girl with my name in every class. As with my first two girls, I would prefer a name not in the top 1000, but would consider something at least past 600 (My faves are Margo and Judith). Any alternatives I can present to my Josephine-loving hubby???

    Do you like Josephine? I really don't think it will be an issue of having several in her class. It's a lovely name and really not that popular. I think it's more versatile than Margo and Judith.

    Is he interested in possibly using Josephine as a middle name? Then he would get Josephine and you wouldn't have to worry about it becoming quite so popular.

    Other Suggestions

    Ruth - has Christian significance, is beautiful and simple, but without being too popular.
    Flora - is an older name that is very pretty and is unlikely to be too popular, plus if he is okay with Josephine in the middle Flora Josephine is a pretty name.

    I really do not think Josephine is popular! Those numbers can be tricky. I live in a trendy town and I never hear it. It is a beautiful and classy name with potentials for great nicknames. I really like it and better than Judith. Margot is cute.
