Trying to find a name in memory of a member of family named Josette for DD1. What are your thoughts of Josie?

Josie is nice. But I really like Josette. Why not go with that?

Saw your thread title and thought 'Josie is nice but Josette is much prettier' so there you go.

Love love love Josie

we almost used it for DD..... it's lovely. I was slightly put off by people pronouncing it differently (Jo-sea or Jo-zee) as it can be a bit of a pain having to correct people although perhaps not a big problem. why not use Josette with Josie at a nn - Josette is gorgeous! also Josephine is another lovely name

I'm a Josie although my name is Josephine so am biased I hated my babe growing up but quite like it now smile

MairzyDoats Fri 04-Mar-16 10:15:07

Josephine is also lovely!

I prefer Josette to Josie to be honest.

squoosh Fri 04-Mar-16 10:26:06

But I really don't like Josephine.

SweetheartLittleLove Fri 04-Mar-16 10:26:22

Josephine and Josie are really lovely names

Scoose Fri 04-Mar-16 10:29:50

Babe should obviously be name I don't hate babes confused

I love it - DS would have been Josie if he had come out a girl!

MyBreadIsEggy Fri 04-Mar-16 10:51:11

I like Josie but when it's pronounced Jo-see not Jo-zee.
Josette is also beautiful!! You could always put Josette on the birth certificate but call her Josie as a nn?
If our DC2 turns out to be a boy In debating calling him Edward, even though I know he would become Teddy pretty quickly!

I quite like Josie as a nickname for Josephine, and Josette is very pretty too.

I don't like the pronounciation Jo-zee though.

and the pussycats grin

Josette is beautiful - I'd use that and then use Josie as a day to day nn. I like Josie but not as much. Give her the option!

I like Josie but not keen on Josette.

DontKillMyVibe Fri 04-Mar-16 15:24:43

Josianne? I like Josette though!

villainousbroodmare Fri 04-Mar-16 15:38:43

Not a fan... I do know a male Jozi which I think is cool though.

CreamofTartar Fri 04-Mar-16 15:48:00

Josette is rather chic.

Josie for me, though, is a sixty-something rural gossip in a floral pinny who says 'The likes of him should be praying for a happy death at his age ' whenever she hears of a man over fifty doing anything other than going to mass.

There's a Josette in the Chalet School books, isn't there? One of the gruesome Joey Maynard's nieces, I think, but I can't remember whether she's the beautiful spoilt brat who scalds and nearly kills her younger sister because of her vanity, or the younger sister who gets scalded and remains 'delicate' (though that's always a good thing in the CS books)...

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 04-Mar-16 16:25:50

Sybil and Josette! I think they were Madge's daughters.

Pretty cool names.

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 04-Mar-16 16:26:44

Was Margot not the sociopathic brat?

AuntJane Fri 04-Mar-16 16:27:46

As an alternative, Jocelyn?
