This name is usually a diminutive of Jozef (for men) and Josephina (for women), but there are also cases where it is a diminutive of Jodocus via its short form Josse. Also, since -ken is a diminutive suffix that was primarily used in the Middle Ages and has since been replaced by the more modern -ke, we can actually say that Josken is the medieval variant of Joske.
