Definitely a boy name! <- No it's not, it can be either!
- 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.
