Joshua....another Brittany....

My husband named my son Joshua because he is not in love with his own name. In the beginning I thought it was too common. But now I am in love with the name. It is strong in meaning, cute and it will suit him as he grows. He went from Joshie-poo to Joshie to Jo-Jo to Josh and it turns out sharing a name is not as horrid as I thought.
Joshua Kai.

-XoX.

My son's name is Joshua Benjamin. His middle name is his father's name. I think that the name suits him perfectly. He is two, we usually call him Joshua, Joshi, or Josh.

My oldest son is Joshua Alexander. We researched and thought a lot before we named him, but didn't decide 100% until we saw him. Now he's 24 and has two babies...Lily and Max (cute names huh?)

Joshua- my mother-in-laws choice
written by Lauren, June 10, 2010
My mother-in-law was obsessed with this name and when ever someone was excpecting, whether it was one of my 3sister-in-laws(& 1 has 3 sons)or me-she said it would just be great if he was naughty and she could just say JOSH and he must know.... i hated the name. When i was excpecting the Dr told me it was a girl with each and every sonar- turns out the day i had my baby it was a BOY- when they showed him to me it was just like- " this is a JOSHUA" The name is really strong and defines my son so well.I absolutely love the name.
