Josie

God increases
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 500
Josie is known as a cute short form for Josephine, a French name taken from Joseph, which means “God/Jehovah will increase.” In the Book of Genesis, Joseph was the favored 11th son of Jacob, so his name’s meaning makes sense. Josie was a hot name in the 19th century but petered out during the next 100 years. With old-fashioned names trending, spunky Josie is back in business. Models Josie Maran and Josie Canseco give the name a pretty advantage.
