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

I prefer it as a nickname. [name]Josie[/name] 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

[name]Josie[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Bianca[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Cecilia[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Diana[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Gertrude[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Hermione[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Irina[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Lucia[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Natalia[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Rebecca[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Theresa[/name]

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

I like the pp’s suggestion of [name]Josie[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]… what about:

[name]Josie[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Josie[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]

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

I don’t think [name]Josie[/name] is as “childish” as other “nicknames”, I can see it working just fine on an adult.

What about [name]Josette[/name] for the first name and [name]Josie[/name] as her nickname?

Prefer [name]Josephine[/name] nn [name]Josie[/name].

My god daughter is [name]Josephine[/name] [name]Louise[/name] which I love! [name]Josie[/name] [name]Lou[/name]
