Reply to: Jewish naming customs by FloydWright
As is my understanding some Jewish people choose to give their children a secular (non-relgiious) name as well as a Hebrew religious anme that is used in the contect of their religion, at the temple, and ceremonies.

Trational jewish nameing for a male (I dont know the female) is X ben Y translated to English as X son of Y, so Jesus would be Joshua son of Joseph or Yehoshua ben Yoseph.
