This Spanish form of Joe is not as popular as Joseph in the US, but it's still far ahead of Joel, Joe, Joey and Yosef. A top baby name in the 1990s, Jose has been in and out of the top 100 in recent years. It sports the nicknames Pepe, Pepito, Chepe and Chepito, believed to have evolved from earlier forms of Josepe and Josep. Careful–don’t mistake Jose with Josue, a French and Spanish variation of Joshua. Other popular Spanish boys' names in the US include Mateo and Angel.
