Josephine Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Feminine; USAGE: English, German, Dutch; PRONOUNCED: JO-sa-feen (English), yo-ze-FEE-na (German). The English, German and Dutch form of the French JOSEPHINE. Origin French: May God give increase; feminine form of Joseph. The English adopted the name Josephine from Josephine which is the French equivalent of the Hebrew name “Yosef” (Joseph). The original Hebrew name translates to “God shall give a son.” This is a fitting translation, as Joseph was the eleventh son of Israel (Jacob) from the book of Genesis.
Joseph was also the most favored son that “Jacob made him a robe of many colors” because he was “the son of his old age” (Genesis 37:3). — As a feminine given name it has been used on a regular basis since the 19th century. Josephine has always been popular among royalty, one of the most famous bearers is probably Josephine de Beauharnais, the first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte and the first French Empress. — This name derives from the Hebrew name “Yehoseph”, meaning “Yehowah has added, he will enlarge, God will increase, may he add”, which in turn derives from “yâsaph”, meaning “to add, increase, do again, increase, do again”.
The name has enjoyed significant popularity in its many forms in numerous countries, and is especially common in contemporary Israel, as either “Yossi” or “Yosef”. In the Old Testament, Joseph is Jacob’s eleventh son and Rachel’s first. In the New Testament, Joseph is the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. In the New Testament, there is another Joseph as well, Joseph of Arimathea, a secret disciple of Jesus who supplied the tomb in which Jesus was buried.
