Sometimes in Spanish it's HE-soos.

I would never name my child Jesus. Jesus is the name of the Lord Most High. The name Jesus is too holy to be given to a human sinner.

In Portuguese we don't write Jesús, we write Jesus. I know because I'm Brazilian.

Jesus (pronounce He-soos) is a very popular name with Hispanics. Funny story, I was about 6 or 7 and I saw my mom typing a letter on the computer to someone with that name and I saw "Dear Jesus" at the top and I just like "Why are you writing a letter to Jesus?" and she said "No, it's pronouced He-soos".

Jesus like Hay-soos is a whole lot better. But it can still lead to confusion, One time, my cousin worked at a call center, and answered a call to Hay-soos saying "HELLO, Mr. Jee-sus!" Haha.

Please people, this is embarassing. Have some cultural awareness! "Jesús" is Spanish for "Joshua" and is as common in Spain and Mexico as Joshua is in English-speaking countries.

Jesus is NOT the Spanish form of Joshua. It is the Spanish form of Jesus. No matter how you slice or dice the name it is the same as Jesus in English and the same as Jesus in any other language. When Spanish-speakers refer to Jesus they are referring to (HEH-soos). This is only used as a name in Spanish-speaking countries. Its usage started in Spain. In any other Christian country it is considered sacrilegious to use. The tradition of theophoric names goes back to Moorish Islamic influence in Spain.

I adore this pronunciation of Jesus more than the English version. I think it's very beautiful and it gives off a strong, valiant presence.

In Spanish it is pronounced che-soos (ch like Bach).

The pronunciation is more like khe-SOOS (xeˈsus in IPA). The letter J is Spanish is pronounced "kh" in most accents.

I believe the name that Spanish Bibles use to refer to Jesus (as in Christ) is Jesu Christo, not Jesús.
