Naming your baby Jesus...

what do you think?

Do you know any?

No, I'm not pregnant. Just asking the question. I put it in Just For Fun b/c I thought more people would read it than in religious debates or pregnancy.

  • Lots of Jesus's down here in Mexico! Hubby's best friend is Jesus, along with a co-worker of mine. Very popular name in the Latin region of the world, kind of like how John or Jacob is in the U.S.

  • I know lots of people named Jesus. It is pronounced differently-but it still means the same thing.

  • I used to work at a telemarketing company when I was 16 (I know, sorry). Anyways, this name would come up on the computer screen once a week. I always thought, "what the hell" Somebody would answer and I would ask if I could please speak to Jesus(as in Jesus Christ). I did this for about 2 years and nobody corrected me! There were others at the job who would listen in on our calls and one day-and the last day- I asked for Jesus, quality assurance came running out of their office to talk to me. They explained the name was pronounced "Hay suse" How embarrassing!
    I think the spelling of this name should be different so there is no confusion:)

  • There shouldn't be another spelling. Its spelled like this because its Spanish.

    Obviously, the Spanish alphabet is very different.

    Answer by khf22 at 7:01 PM on Jan. 8, 2011

  • Oh strange I thought the Spanish alphabet was exactly the same as the English alphabet. This question is just for fun as the OP stated. Thanks for your opinion, though!!!

    Answer by Aquarius80 at 7:05 PM on Jan. 8, 2011

  • No, its different. The pronunciation is totally different! All the letters are not exactly the same.
    Your welcome! ;)
