  1. We chose the name Josie because we just KNEW it was the name the first time we heard it. We also liked the meaning – God will add

  2. We picked the name Josie from a random list of girl names we saw online. But we fell in love with it because I was asking my husband what her nickname would be and he said “JoJo?” and then my two year old son hearing this was walking around saying “JoJo? JoJo?”, it was so cute that it sealed it for us. Also the name comes from “Josephine” which means, “God provides,” which we love.

  3. ‘God will Add’…lovely name for a blessing when others may wonder why you would have ‘another baby’.
