Additional information Joshua:

  • Borne in the Bible by the Israelite leader who took command of the Children of Israel after the death of Moses and led the after many battles, to take possession of the Promised Land. The name, long favoured by Jews and Nonconformist Christians, enjoyed a great surge in popularity in the 1990s. Well known bearers of the name include American-born violinist Joshua Bell and actor Joshua Hartnett.

  • Hebrew Meaning: The name Joshua is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Joshua is: Jehovah is generous. Jehovah saves. In the Old Testament, Joshua was chosen to succeed Moses as leader of the Israelites for their journey to the Promised Land.
  • Like most of the top boy names, Joshua’s roots are in the Bible. He was one of the 12 spies Moses sent into Canaan, eventually succeeding Moses and leading the Israelites into the Promised Land. Since it’s a Hebrew name, most Joshuas born before the seventeenth century and the Protestant Reformation were Jewish. Interestingly enough, though, the name Jesus is derived from Joshua’s Hebrew form. After moseying along in the mid-hundreds for almost a century, Joshua blasted up the charts from the ’60s (average ranking 336) to the ’70s (24). It continued to rise and has been in the top 10 for more than a decade now. Though Joshua is still ranked as highly as it was during its peak in the ’80s, today about half as many baby boys are actually receiving the name -- since so many more names are being used in general, having one that’s highly ranked isn’t quite as likely to lead to a classroom full of peers answering to the same name.
  • From the Hebrew name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (Yehoshu'a) meaning "YAHWEH is salvation". Joshua was one of the twelve spies sent into Canaan by Moses, as told in the Old Testament. After Moses died Joshua succeeded him as leader of the Israelites. As an English name, Joshua has been in use since the Protestant Reformation. The name Jesus comes from a Greek translation of the Aramaic short form יֵשׁוּעַ (Yeshu'a), which was the real name of Jesus.
