Super absurd and ugly!
I like it, not feminine at all.
I had no idea this was becoming so popular. I haven't heard it once in my area despite the fact that it is currently in the top 100 of the charts. It's actually a really nice name, so I can see why it's so high up there.
This name is really becoming popular. It's one of my favorite biblical names.
The name is really nice and underused. I’m surprised it's not more popular. This isn’t in the slightest feminine.

My name good name.
Sounds too girly for a boy. Josiah is better suited for a girl!
I disagree with the above comment. Josiah is much better suited for boys.
I’m liking this name. It’s not sounding way too biblical although it does have a religious touch.
Familiar but under-used. I quite like this name. It is a biblical name but, not so overly in-your-face. I can see the "Joey" nickname as a child / "Jo" as a teenager. I like it better than Joseph just based on how over-used that name is in comparison. Josiah suits a grown man much better than Joshua, which always sounds like a little boy to me, too.

I really really got a nice name... wow... I'm proud of my name.
Much like Isaiah, I often heard this name used by young Christian parents back when I went to church, and have grown to associate this name strongly with religious people. Given my wariness of Christians, that's not a good thing in my mind, and I'd probably feel nervous and uncomfortable the second I heard someone introduce himself as "Josiah." So, I don't have the best feelings regarding this name, which is a shame, because I don't actually think it sounds that bad.
I love the name Josiah. It is beautiful and has always been my favorite name for a boy. It gets mixed up with Joshua a lot. I don't mind that so much though since Joshua is another beautiful name. It can have a "s" or "z" pronunciation. It is also somewhat unique yet traditional.
Nice name. I like Joss as a nickname.
I knew someone named Josiah. He went by Jojo as a boy, Siah as a teenager, and Josiah as a man.
My great grandfather's name was Josiah. I've always thought it was kind of cool and unique. I was actually surprised that so many people had good things to say about this name. Maybe it will make a comeback!

I like this name. Both for a girl, and a boy.Not long ago, I had a dream that I was in a square confused and lost. I came across this sailor looking guy, and I asked him where I was. He said, "Your name is not Sasha. It's Josia." And I'm all, "What?". But yes, it's very weird. That's how I found this name, I was curious to see if it existed.
I love this name for the Biblical character and also the sound of it. I named my son this, thinking it was a very unique name, but later found out it is becoming quite popular. My husband and I pronounce it with a "z" sound, but both his grandfathers pronounce it with the (correct?) "s" sound.
I love having this name because not a lot of other guys have it. It makes me feel unique.
