I don't like it as a full name. It just feels boring and it doesn't sound pleasant as a full name. Plus it's too short, like Mo or Bo or something. I like it as a nickname for Johannes though.

I think the name Joseph is way too serious. The name Joe is for nice, sweet, generous little squirts like me. ;)

Joe Inoue is an American rock musician signed to Sony Music Entertainment Japan's Ki/oon Records label. He was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, to two Japanese immigrants. It was not until middle school that he became interested in music and that eventually led him to start his musical career in 2007. He was accepted to UCLA and UC Berkeley but had chosen music. Inoue performs every instrument on his recordings in addition to writing and composing the pieces on his own. Although he was born and raised in the United States, his first language is Japanese. He's also very proficient in Portuguese. He spoke Japanese at home and later learned English when he entered public school. He claims to have learned Japanese by reading manga and watching anime.

I've never met a Joseph who didn't go by Joe. Why can't a Joseph be called Joe for once?

I don't like this name. I much prefer the name Joseph instead, and I don't like the name Joseph either because of how plain and bland it is. But Joe is a nasty sounding name in my opinion. This name makes me not want to call a child Joseph or Josiah so this horrendous nickname won't be out on them.

Joe is a strong, classic name, suggesting the kind of guy you can depend on in a pinch. It tends to have a blue-collar ring to it, so I'd expect a boy named Joe to grow up to be an athlete rather than a professor. Of course, Joe is just a nickname for Joseph, so if I ever met a man whose true first name were Joe rather than Joseph, I'd conclude that his parents weren't very educated.

There have been plenty of star athletes named Joe. Just football alone has included Joe Namath (Jets quarterback), Joe Flacco (Ravens quarterback), Joe Montana (only three-time Super Bowl MVP), Joe Theismann (Redskins quarterback), Joe Bellino (Heisman Trophy winner for Navy), Mean Joe Greene (Steelers defensive tackle), and Joe Gibbs (NFL coach who won three Super Bowls).

If kids named baby's, this is what they would pick. Sounds boring, dated, and ugly!

This nickname reminds me of Glass Joe, the wimpy French guy from the Punch-Out games made by Nintendo. He's pretty funny.

I think of Joe as a normal name for a regular guy, but a strong name. I know kids, adults and old men named Joe--it truly never dates. I also think that it goes with a wide variety of last names.

I have a son called Joe and he's certainly no average Joe; that's such a negative thought pattern. Joe is such a strong name which never dates. Yes Joe is Cool. :-)

You have to like the name Joe. Anyone named Joe would like their name because it is awesome and has nothing bad about it. The name Joe sounds really nice. :) Joe is the king and he will rule you!

Don't forget Joe Strummer, the fearless leader of the punk band The Clash. Died in 2002, the world lost a great musician.

It quite nice. I've used it for a boy in one of my stories. If I was forced to have a boy who was going to be called Joe I'd call him Jonah or Jonas. Not Joseph or Josef.

Joe is also short for Jehovah, meaning BELOVED. Likewise, JOY means BELOVED, as do names Amy, David, Fred, Francis and Frank. King Frederick was known as the love king. To be Free is to love (LIBRA/LIBERTY). A FRiEnd is also a love, or 'en France, mon AMIe (AMY). Different Bibles will say Jesus was the Son of (DAVID or JOseph, or even the CHO sen, i.e., JOE's son) in the same chapters.

Joe is an awful name in my opinion. It would be much better to just name someone Joseph, and pray they don't take on the nickname Joe. It sounds so sloppy, (no puns intended) and gross. Yuck!
