    Joe King??

    We are having the hardest time finding a name we like for our baby boy. I feel like the only name I like right now is Joseph, but is Joe King (our last name) a deal breaker?? "Hi, I'm Joe King" - sounds like "I'm joking". ? I feel like every name I like has some sort of deal breaker attached to it. 😑

    The Joe King / joking thing makes me like the name even more! Haha but that's just me. If it bothers you it might not be the one. Joseph is a very handsome name on its own and a nickname could be Joey too. What are some of the other names you're considering?

    I didn't even notice that when I read the thread title! I think it's sweet and silly but not a deal breaker.

    I wouldnt use Joe all the time, but if it's an occasional nickname and he mostly goes by Joseph he'll likely never be called Joe King, just Joseph King

    My first thought was Joey King (the actress). When I said it out loud, the joking thing was very obvious. Idk I think it’s usable but I can’t disagree with the downsides.

    If you really really love Joseph I think it's doable, but I personally wouldn't do it. In my office for sure he would be called Joe King (unless he'd firmly establish a different nick name early on) and it really doesn't roll of the tongue super well. Are there any other names you're considering?

    I thought "joking" immediately. I've heard Joe King used as a joke name before, like Ben Dover but not as bad. I don't think Joseph is a usable name for you guys, unless it's truly the only option, but he wouldn't be able to use nn Joe later in life because he would not be taken seriously.

    I would not recommend this. It makes me think of Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) and how he realized his name was Dong Lover.

    Well Stephen King named his son Joseph but I think he did that in part so that he would be joking, I think Joseph King is just fine, but i would make sure you decided on and stick to a different nn just so he doesn't have to introduce himself as "Joking". I was in my 20's when I found out about Stephen King's son and I laughed about it for a while. I am sure Joe King would be made fun of/ bullied.

    Please dont. He'll obviously get jokes made all the time.

    Maybe names that you can use Joe as a nickname for.. Jonathan, Justin, Joseph, I dont know.

    Or Joey atleast.
