If you'd like to name your son after the holy carpenter, these names are terrific matches.

Many people love the name Joseph. It’s timeless and familiar, as well as popular in many cultures. Of course, it’s also the name of the Virgin Mary’s husband and Jesus’ earthly father and since the Church celebrates his feast day today, we thought we’d come up with a list of names that pair well with Joseph. Not only are each of these monikers worthy in their own right for any baby boy, they work perfectly together.

The name Joseph literally means “he will add” from the Hebrew Yosef, and won’t your little angel do just that when he joins your family? In the list below you’ll discover 12 admirable men to stand side by side with your very own Joseph — for a terrific start in life.
