This is my son's name and he loves it. He goes by Joey with the girls and JoeJoe with the guys and Joseph in formal settings. It is a highly recognizable, confident name that he wont ever have to spell (unlike my name which no one ever gets right).

My boyfriend's name is Joseph. I think it's kind of strange how my name is Mary and his name is Joseph. because Mary and Joseph were both from the bible.
