additionalEnglish form of the biblical Hebrew name Yosef, meaning 'God shall add another son'. This was borne by the favourite son of Jacob, whose brothers became very jealous of him and sold him into slavery (Genesis 37). He was taken to Egypt, where he rose to become chief steward to Pharoh, and was eventually reconciled to his brothers when they came to buy corn during a seven-year famine (Genesis 43-7). In the New Testament Joseph is the name of the husband of the Virgin Mary. It is also borne by a rich Jew, Joseph of Arimathea, who took Jesus down from the Cross, wrapped him in a shroud, and buried him in a rock tomb. According to medieval legend, Joseph of Arimathea brought the Holy Grail to Britain. The name was uncommon in Britain in the Middle Ages buy was revived in the mid 16th century and had become popular by mid 17th, as it still is today.

additionalKinda funny: Joseph means something like “God will add,” and for more than the last century, someone’s been adding a whole lot of, well, Josephs. The name’s been ranked in the US top 16 since at least 1880, and is well-used in different forms all over the world. (It actually has variations in languages we haven’t even heard of, like the Lombard Giusepp and Pepp.) Joseph’s popularity started way back in biblical times, with prominent characters like Jacob’s favorite son (remember Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat?) and the Virgin Mary’s husband. No matter how many little Josephs are added, we still love the name. From Joey to Joe to Joseph, it’s kind of like the magical moniker that morphs to perfectly suit a guy throughout his entire life.

additionalFrom Ioseph, the Latin form of Greek Ιωσηφ (Ioseph), which was from the Hebrew name יוֹסֵף (Yosef) meaning "he will add". In the Old Testament, Joseph is the eleventh son of Jacob. Because he was the favourite of his father, his older brothers sent him to Egypt and told their father that he had died. In Egypt, Joseph became an advisor to the pharaoh, and was eventually reconciled with his brothers when they came to Egypt during a famine. This name also occurs in the New Testament, belonging to Saint Joseph the husband of Mary and Joseph of Arimathea. In the Middle Ages, Joseph was a common Jewish name, being less frequent among Christians. In the late Middle Ages Saint Joseph became more highly revered, and the name became popular in Spain and Italy. In England it became common after the Protestant Reformation. This name was borne by rulers of the Holy Roman Empire and Portugal. Other notable bearers include Polish-British author Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) and the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin (1878-1953).
