In original Hebrew Jesus's name is Yeshua.

This is not an opinion or guess, this is what the Bible says.
Matthew 1:21 (New King James Version)
21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
So yes Jesus means savior, but Yehshua is related to Joshua but it doesn't directly come from it.

The Greek and Aramaic form of Jesus derive from the Greek word: ΙΑΣΟΝ (Jason) which means in Greek: the person who heals. We find this word as second component also in the English word: disease > dis-ease = bad healing.

The English name came as many from a mistake. The Bible was first printed in Germany. When it was translated into English the name remained in the german form. So Jesus Should have been translated Iesus since J is pronounced as I in german.
Ps: usually the simplest solution is the correct one;
