Great nickname for Joshua. The name makes me think of a tall, good-looking, popular guy who is still kind to others.

Every Josh I've met has been arrogant and a tool. Don't like the sound of it either.

How is this a name? It sounds like an interjection to me...

All the Josh's I've ever known have been conceited and arrogant. It doesn't mean that they all ARE however, I just think it's important for people to know the impressions people get of the name before you name them this.

I don't like this name, I picture a goth kid who listens to rock music and has bad behaviour. Joshua is better.

Simply cannot stand this name. Every Josh I have met has had their brain development cease at about 15 years of age. It's such a teenage name, and would be hard to mature into manhood with. Then again, it might be a good name for an actor or musician. Good luck to all of you Josh's out there.

Please Please PLEASE reconsider Josh or Joshua, I have heard and met of too many of them. It is the New Tom or Steve. It's the most redundant name for a guy in my book, plus half of the Joshs I met are either fat, obnoxious, pompous, or all the above. Look around some more future parents.

I dislike the name Joshua anyway, because of the three harsh sounds all grating up against one another, but I dislike the nickname Josh even more. It makes me think of a dumb high school jock, and it's like every fifth guy under the age of thirty is a Josh. I find it hard to take a grown man seriously when he goes by Josh professionally instead of just among family and close friends. It's a childish nickname the likes of Mikey or Billy.

Josh is a very youthful name, that only someone with a vibrant, young personality could carry into adulthood. In a serious, corporate setting, Joshua would be more appropriate.

Josh makes me think of a boy who is somewhat shy in class but very social when with his friends. Hair color could vary, maybe his full name should be Joshua.
