Jerusha Hess was one of the writers for the movie 'Napoleon Dynamite'. I think it's a very pretty name.

This is my name. Although I like it now it was a difficult name to grow up with as it is mispronounced very often.

I like this name. I wouldn't use it, though, because I find obscure Biblical names are primarily confined to 17th century Puritan families and modern Evangelical groups.

I think this is a beautiful name. You'd have to be brave enough to give your daughter a very unusual name. It deserves to be more widely used, however, I wouldn't want to see it become too popular.

Too close to Joshua to be considered feminine to me. It is pretty, though. This name's growing on me.

Jerusha Bromley was the name of Julie Andrews' character in the 1966 movie "Hawaii."

I generally dislike all Biblical names that go beyond two syllables, and, in fact, even many of the ones that are two syllables long, but I sort of like this name, but only in other languages than English. In English, the name has a harsh and ghetto-ish sound, whereas in many European languages, this name sounds, or would sound (as no one uses it), quite cute, like a Russian nickname for a Russian name.

I love this name, though I prefer the original Hebrew pronunciation: yer-OO-shah.

Despite it ending with an 'a', it sounds really masculine. Don't really care for it.

The central character in "Daddy Long Legs" is an orphan who goes by the name of Judy but was given the name Jerusha as a baby.

I am probably a bit biased, as an intelligent, bubbly friend from my childhood was named Jerusha. It's a name that initially intrigued me. I wouldn't use it, but it's an interesting name. Said friend personally loved her name and also loved my nickname for her, 'Roo'.

My name is Jerusha. I get many compliments about it but many people pronounce it wrong too. But no one ever pronounced it as Joshua. My dad named me after Julie Andrews' character in Hawaii. I hated it when I was younger, But now I really like my uncommon name.

Means "inheritance" in Hebrew.
