I usually prefer 'f' to 'ph', but this name makes me think of both Stalin and Mengele, which are not good associations! Of course, most people probably won't have that thought at all, and there's no real reason it shouldn't be used.

Josef is a very cool name, but I don't like the English pronunciation Jo-seff. It's Yo-sef.
