Much more prettier than Josephine.
It is a lovely name, very classic.

She was a first cousin of Harald V of Norway. She was the first child of King Leopold III of Belgium, and sister of the late King Baudouin and retired King Albert II, and aunt of King Philippe.
Napoleon's wife was actually called Marie Josèphe Rose.
The French pronunciation is so pretty, as always =)
Nicknames are Josée or Fifi in France.
The Spanish way of pronouncing it is ho-se-FEEN.
Josephine was the full name of a character in Les Miserables, who was Fantine's friend when they were in Paris. She was nicknamed Zephine.
Joséphine was indeed Bonaparte's first wife and her granddaughter who was named after her became queen of Sweden and Norway in the early 19th Century, and the first practicing Catholic queen since the Middle Ages.
Actually, Josephine was the *first* wife of Napolean. He had a second one. [noted -ed]
