My partners name is Joseph so he's called joe for short, thinking so will Josiah! What do you think of the name?

Reminds me of the West Wing! President Bartlett was Josiah, but was called Jed for short.

So dad is Joe and son will be Joe? I wouldn't.

Second name will be Antonio
So Josiah Antonio then his last name?

DH's grandad was a Josiah, I love the name.

Love it!

Could the short name be Josh? That would be almost as good as Jed. smile

I love it! Bartlett for America! It's a nice old fashioned biblical name which can have a few shortenings so it can sound more informal too. My son has a fairly long biblical name which gets shortened to something we call him every day, everyone says how lovely his full name is as well.

I like it a lot. But two points:

1. Yes I do think it will be shortened to Joe by most people.
2. Josiah Antonio don't go great together in my opinion because of the A sounds running into each other. I would want the second name to begin with a consonant.

Would you be brave enough to have Bartlet as middle name?

I know a Jasiah, always thought it was a strange name, but he was foreign.

Sorry Lweji - just realised it was your suggestion. Genius!

Sophronia Mon 15-May-17 21:27:31

Love it! I've also heard Jos/Joss and Siah as nns.
