My all-time favorite male name. It's strong and masculine, a bit mysterious, very classic but not old-sounding.

Josiah sounds strong-sounding, attractive and classy. I think it's a very nice name for a boy.

Oh my god I absolutely adore this name! I always loved it and first came across the name when I was reading a Nancy Drew book. One of the character's names was Josiah Crowley.

I love this name for the Biblical character and also the sound of it. I named my son this, thinking it was a very unique name, but later found out it is becoming quite popular. My husband and I pronounce it with a "z" sound, but both his grandfathers pronounce it with the (correct?) "s" sound.

I like this name. Both for a girl, and a boy.

Not long ago, I had a dream that I was in a square confused and lost. I came across this sailor looking guy, and I asked him where I was. He said, "Your name is not Sasha. It's Josia." And I'm all, "What?". But yes, it's very weird. That's how I found this name, I was curious to see if it existed.

My great grandfather's name was Josiah. I've always thought it was kind of cool and unique. I was actually surprised that so many people had good things to say about this name. Maybe it will make a comeback!
