  • For a small boy, yeah. As they get older they prefer Joe.

  • I think Joey is adorable. I think I like it better as a nn for Joseph though.

  • We have a Joseph, and I would never let anyone call him Joey.. It sounds stupid, IMO. His friends call him Joe, and I have a hard time with that too... I will always call him Joseph..

  • I like it as a NN for Joseph. I feel like men need "adult" names when they are older. For example. It's hard to imagine a Dr. Joey (w/out thinking of Friends LOL) but, a Dr. Joseph, is believable.
