Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua . So how did we get the name “Jesus”?
The Hebrew name of Jesus of Nazareth is probably pronounced ‘Yeshua’, although this is uncertain and depends on the reconstruction of several ancient Hebrew dialects.
Jesus (IPA: /ˈdʒiːzəs/) is a masculine given name derived from the name Iēsous (Greek: Ἰησοῦς), the Greek form of the Hebrew name Yeshua or Y’shua (Hebrew: ישוע). As its roots lie in the name Yeshua /Y’shua, it is etymologically related to another biblical name, Joshua.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Yahshua is a proposed transliteration of the original Hebrew name of Jesus of Nazareth (יהושע), considered by Christians and Messianic Jews to be the Messiah. The name means Yahweh (Yah) is salvation (Shua).

Jesus does not have a last name. Last names were not common in those times. Christ is not a name, but a title. Christ means “anointed” or “Messiah”, so Jesus became the “ Christ ” or “Messiah” when he got baptized at the age of 30.
Elohim , singular Eloah, (Hebrew: God), the God of Israel in the Old Testament. Thus, in Genesis the words, “In the beginning God ( Elohim ) created the heavens and the earth,” Elohim is monotheistic in connotation, though its grammatical structure seems polytheistic.
In the Hebrew Bible (Exodus 3:14), Yahweh , the personal name of God, is revealed directly to Moses .
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel , which being interpreted is, God with us. The gospel of Matthew was written by an author who believed that Jesus was the promised Messiah, “God with us”.
The Gospel of Mark (6:3) and the Gospel of Matthew (13:55–56) mention James, Joseph/Joses, Judas/Jude and Simon as brothers of Jesus , the son of Mary. The same verses also mention unnamed sisters of Jesus .
Muslims believe that Jesus (called “ Isa ” in Arabic) was a prophet of God and was born to a virgin (Mary ).
Yahweh is the name of the God of the Bible. He is the God to whom Jesus prayed. Similarly, Jesus is an Anglicised version of a Greek version of the name Ιησούς, which, itself, in Hebrew is יהושע, commonly Joshua in English. So Jesus and Joshua are effectively the same name.
