Joey, the more casual and mischieveous little brother of Joe and Joseph, is more likely to be used as a nickname nowadays, but don’t let that stop you. Fictional bearers of the name reflect it’s breezy nature from Full House‘s goofy Uncle Joey, to Blossom’s airheaded younger brother (catchphrase: “Whoa!”), to the lovable and dimwitted Joey Tribiani from TV’s megahit, Friends.
