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

This spelling makes me think of Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man who held his daughter hostage and fathered children with her.

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.
