Joshua is the right name. Josh is the nickname.
This name deserves its hate because it has no feminine variant, so stop loving this name you pathetic tools that y'all are.
Ewww, what a childish name. I can already imagine a small, pathetic and pretentious boy who is 12. All the Joshes I have met have been annoying, sad and petty. To any parents, don't name your child this stupid name.
It's also so common and BORING!
Meh. Average name.

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

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. 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.
