José is a nice forename that I like, but it is very popular. Being a member of the crowd can be a good thing if someone would like to have this name for their child.

Actually, I have read that in Spain this is a common second name for girls, just as Maria is for boys. So for example, a girl may be Maria Jose and a boy might be Jose Maria. Interesting.

In Dutch this is more a female name. It's also written as Josee. We pronounce it as yosay.

Well, I'm not that into this name if you're in America, everybody will start to pronounce it Josie and then say Hosay and then they will start to spell it Hosea and then scribble that out and write Jose.

I know a ghetto white kid named Joseph that I call Jose because it's just so freaking funny, but other than that, I'm not too fond of this name.
