Can I just use Josh? It's for a middle name smile all my other children (3 of them!) have a 1 syllable, J name (as a middle name) and I enjoy saying it with their first name. If not, I'll use Jack.

Even if it was for a first name, would you? I just feel like it's still just as important, IMO.

Well, there are two questions in your post.

1) Can you use it?
A: Yes

2) Would I do it?
A: No

Yes of you like it
And yes!

I'd use Jack.

That's just preference though, but thank you smile

Yup, use Jack. I think Josh as a full name is the equivalent of Danny or Ricky as a full name, and at some point he may not like it.

What do you mean "That's just preference" OP? We're telling you our preference confused

I don't like Josh as a name in itself. It looks unfinished. I don't like it.

Therefore, I'd use Jack out of the two,

Yes and yes

Sorry, I didn't mean it in a funny way. I thought you were just picking your favourite. Instead of you wouldn't just use Josh.

smile he's your baby, use it if you would regret not.

What's the first name?

FannyJanny Fri 23-Sep-16 16:34:52

Noah smile

But Joshua is such a cute name! :-)

Someone on my family has just called their baby a big first name+ josh middle name and it has a lovely ring to it.
Both my ds are called shortened\ nickname versions of their names.

I know of someone with Joss as a middle name if that helps?

I like Josh and agree that Joshua doesn't really work with Noah. I personally don't like unnecessarily long names that beg to be shortened.

Its a middle name so I would go for it! As a first name I would call him Joshua only because he has to have his first name all his life, when applying for jobs etc... But really it's your choice, if you prefer Josh to Jack then go with Josh 😊 xx

I would use Josh. It's super cute and cool.
