My mother-in-law was obsessed with this name and when ever someone was excpecting, whether it was one of my 3sister-in-laws(& 1 has 3 sons)or me-she said it would just be great if he was naughty and she could just say JOSH and he must know.... i hated the name. When i was excpecting the Dr told me it was a girl with each and every sonar- turns out the day i had my baby it was a BOY- when they showed him to me it was just like- " this is a JOSHUA" The name is really strong and defines my son so well.I absolutely love the name.
