Personal experiences with the name Joey: | Edit

I am a Joey! It's simply a short catchy name for girls. Usually gives the idea of being tomboyish. It's irritating though, that people would go "Isn't that a guy's name?" just because they watched Friends. It's a unisex name.

Nicknames for Joey: | Edit

I've been called Jojo, Jo and Mojojojo (yes, after the Powerpuff Girls' evil monkey friend).
