  • It's a very common Spanish name, although, funny enough I never knew anyone named Jesus growing up and was in a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood and 95% of my classmates were of Mexican decent growing up.

  • LOL! I'm from a small town and grew up with only white people. I was a bit sheltered. Anyway, when I was 16 I got a telemarketing job LOL! Whenever this name, Jesus, came up I asked for Jesus as in Jesus Christ....How embarrassing. I remember thinking what a strange name to name your child LOL!

    No I would never name my child this, too confusing haha

  • In the Hispanic cultures it is pronounced "Hey-zeus."

    If the family feels it is an appropriate name, they are free to name their child "Jesus."

    The Spanish have always had a very incarnational approach to the faith, thanks be to God, and a very familiar way with God. And you might say that we do name our children after Jesus - Joshua is a variant of His name.
