Like most of the top boy names, Joshua’s roots are in the Bible. He was one of the 12 spies Moses sent into Canaan, eventually succeeding Moses and leading the Israelites into the Promised Land. Since it’s a Hebrew name, most Joshuas born before the seventeenth century and the Protestant Reformation were Jewish. Interestingly enough, though, the name Jesus is derived from Joshua’s Hebrew form. After moseying along in the mid-hundreds for almost a century, Joshua blasted up the charts from the ’60s (average ranking 336) to the ’70s (24). It continued to rise and has been in the top 10 for more than a decade now. Though Joshua is still ranked as highly as it was during its peak in the ’80s, today about half as many baby boys are actually receiving the name -- since so many more names are being used in general, having one that’s highly ranked isn’t quite as likely to lead to a classroom full of peers answering to the same name.
From the Hebrew name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (Yehoshu'a) meaning "YAHWEH is salvation". Joshua was one of the twelve spies sent into Canaan by Moses, as told in the Old Testament. After Moses died Joshua succeeded him as leader of the Israelites. As an English name, Joshua has been in use since the Protestant Reformation. The name Jesus comes from a Greek translation of the Aramaic short form יֵשׁוּעַ (Yeshu'a), which was the real name of Jesus.

Wow that guy is such a joshua.
The most amazing guy you will ever meet. He can be sweet and sensitive and overprotective all at once. He fights for what he believes in, and will never back down if he feels that the one he cares for is in danger. He doesn't cuss every other word, in fact he tries not to cuss at all.

He can be spontaneous, but he prefers to ask your preference before doing anything that could possibly be upsetting or taken the wrong way, he is the ultimate man!
