First, I thank my opponent for taking this debate. I apologize if your name is Joe.

First round - arguments.
There's only one round. That's it.

Bob is easier to spell than Joe - Bob only has two letters used, b and o. Joe has three: j, o, and e.

Bob is more fun to say than Joe - Bo-ob. Bo-b. B-ob. See? Fun to say!

There's no confusion about Bob - While Joe can be mistaken for girl nickname Jo, there's no female counterpart of Bob. If someone says, "My friend Jo(e)," unless they say so, you have no idea of the sex of the friend. If someone says, "My friend Bob," you know for sure this friend is a boy.

As you can see, Bob is a far better name than Joe. Vote Pro!


first, i would like to point out that Joe in fact uses less time to write then bob, test it out for yourself.

Bob sounds really boring, Job sounds more piercing, harsh, and fun. JOE, jo-e, j-oe. joe is more of a name. sounding out Bob is moving your lip up and down while making a sound. Joe requires lots of skilled movement of the mouth, and is therefore a smarter name.

Joe Jackson, joe Jonas, joe Biden. Joes in this world are so much more important than the bobs of this world. Bob dylan? B.O.B? well Joe's got Joe Biden, the VP of the USA, best country in the world.

Joe is a female name and may cause a bit of confusion, but by being apart of both sexes, this name is a name that is equal to both man and woman. Names like this reduce the amount of gender differences between our society and allows us to be less discriminatory by allowing names such as these. This allows us to see women as equal to men and thus ushers in a paradigm shift for gender equality!
