My son who will be 4 at the birth of my child is Isaac. I think your idea of pairing this name with an Isaac is perfect.

My son is 15 mo. and his name is Josiah. I was a little worried about the name being too unique...but now we couldn't have chosen a better name for this little king.

Our 20 month old son is named Josiah. It is unique but I love it more each day. I have done a little study into the Hebrew behind the name and it actually means One who is built upon Jehovah.

My second grandson is named Josiah Mark. He has a older brother named Isaiah Luke. They both are names from the Bible. My daughter picked both of their names and I love their names. Josiah is 2 1/2 years old and Isaiah is 6 years old. Thee have a sister who is 16 months old and her name is Trinity Priscella. She is named after the church Trinity and her middle name is her great grandmother's name.
Love this name!!!

Our son is 20 months old and his name is Josiah Sutton. I think it is actually becoming more and more popular. I had never heard of anyone named Josiah before naming our son and everyone who hears it loves it! I also saw somewhere that this name means "fire of the LORD". I absolutely love it!
a name to go with "Josiah"
written by mary, May 16, 2008
I named my youngest son Josiah after the boy king in the Bible. I chose that name because my oldest is named Jedidiah. Jedidiah was the infant name given to King Solomon in the bible. I absolutely love these names because I can refer to them both as my two little princes.

My son's name is Josiah and I absolutely love it! I get so many compliments on his name. The only problem I am having now is that I am pregnant again and can't find a name that I like as much. I want my other child to have a beautiful name too, but nothing has really caught my eye. Any suggestions?
love this name
written by christina, May 31, 2010
I am 29years old and i didnt think i could have children. I just found out that I am 8 weeks pregnant! I chose Koen Josiah to be my sons name! Koen means high priest and Josiah means support of Jehovah! I love this name! The angglicized verson of josiah is (YOSHIYAHU) this means fire of God! I only hope to have a boy just so i can use this name!
