Meaning & History
This name is usually a diminutive of JOZEF (for men) and JOSEPHINA (for women), but there are also cases where it is a diminutive of JODOCUS via its short form JOSSE. Also, since -ken is a diminutive suffix that was primarily used in the Middle Ages and has since been replaced by the more modern -ke, we can actually say that Josken is the medieval variant of JOSKE.
