Joseph. And as a NN, Joe is better than Oli imo.

I have a Joseph. Brilliant name and I have never regretted it. Also has the added bonus of being able to call him Joebe Wan Kinobe grin

I love both!

I have an Oliver, shortened to Ollie. Know far more Josephs than I do Olivers.

I have a Joseph so I'm biased. Still my very favourite boys name.

Like them both, but love the name Joe, so Joseph for me.

My youngest is a Joseph, I know far more Olivers.

Joseph. There are far far too many Olivers.

I have an Oliver Joseph smile

I have a Joseph although everyone calls him Joe. He's the only one in his school and I still really like the name. Good for man and boy and not crazily popular.

Again I'm biased. smile

Joseph. Oliver v popular at mo.

Whenwillwe3meetagain Tue 18-Nov-14 19:31:06

Joe as far too many Oliver's

I think Oliver was at the top of the charts last year? We already have a Joseph and will probably use Olivier (i.e. Oliver in French) as a middle name for DS2 (DH is French), but it is not so popular in France. We can't decide about the first name for the new baby though!

Joseph definitely though Oliver is lovely it is so overused these days.

Spanielpuppy Tue 18-Nov-14 19:49:20

Definitely Joseph, I'm so fed up of hearing Oliver. Plus Joseph is a much stronger name
