What do people think? Do you know any young Josephines? I quite like the nickname Josie as well but prefer the long version. Would welcome any other nickname suggestions too.

I know one Josephine in her 20s . I personally don't like it for a little one but I do like Josie, that's cute

I dont know any but I think its a nice name. I prefer Josephine over Josie too.

I really like it (for obvs reasons). Not my birth name which is Johanna but I got the nickname Josephine when I was in my early teens. I always found it very romantic.

I love Josephine! Beautiful and strong

DramaAlpaca Wed 08-Aug-18 20:52:38

I think it's elegant & classy. Love it.

I know 2 young Josephines. One aged 7 and the other is 10, both called by their full names, although the older one is sometimes called Josie. Another nn could be Posy.

Yes, I really like it. The Josephine I know is known as Jodie.

Kraggle Wed 08-Aug-18 21:15:04

I have a Josephine! She’s one and gets called Josie, Josiejo, Jose or her full name. Never met another.

Disfordarkchocolate Wed 08-Aug-18 21:16:17

It's beautiful, I would use the full name all the time to show it off.

MrsBlondie Wed 08-Aug-18 21:19:51

Love it and love the nickname Posy/Posie. Strong and elegant.

I know a Josephine who gets called Phine (fee-na) love it!

I know a Josephine who is known as Jo. Very nice but for ages I thought she was Jo short for Joanne.

Makes for think of an old TV advert which says "Not tonight Josephine".
I don't like it personally but I like Joanna.

Petalflowers Wed 08-Aug-18 21:48:33

Like Josephine and Josie. Jo is another obvious nickname, definantly due a revival.

QueenJulian Wed 08-Aug-18 21:49:42

Love it!

RhubarbAndMustard Wed 08-Aug-18 22:41:09

I know a Josephina. Wasn't keen at first but it really suits her. Great name!

Sophronia Wed 08-Aug-18 22:52:23

I like it. I’ve heard Sephie as a nn.

Appleandmango22 Wed 08-Aug-18 23:08:40

Effie as a nn?

SophieofShepherdsBush Wed 08-Aug-18 23:14:46

It's nice; will you pronounce it with a z or a soft s in the middle ? Dh and I pronounce Josephine quite differently from each other. Would this annoy you?

Picknickers Wed 08-Aug-18 23:21:21

I like it very much. I knew one nn Fi

Lucylookingforhelp Thu 09-Aug-18 15:28:28

Personally not a fan but love love love the nickname Effy/ie (think it’s due to me being such a skins fan when I was younger)
