A couple of years ago I liked the name Josse as a short form for names starting with "Jos". I thought I kind of "made it up" but I found Josse in an "Encyclopedia of Judaism". There were more than seventy name bearers listed.

This name is also used in the Netherlands and Flanders (albeit rarely), where it is a unisex name (although it is more commonly found on males than on females).

For males, the name is usually a short form of Jodocus and Jozef. For females, it is usually a short form of Josephine. See also this link:
