  1. It means joyous and full of life. It fits my oldest daughter perfectly.

  2. Well I had actually already had picked out the name 10 year’s earlier when I was pregnant with my youngest son and obviously I wasn’t going to name him that. I had the ideal of somehow taking mine and my husband’s names his name is Josh or Joshua and my middle name is Lynn. Josh-Lynn and then basically got rid of the sh sound Josalynn then of course googled it and the most common way of spelling it is Jocelyn
