Joseph has a rich history beginning with the Hebrew Bible. Christians will recognize the name for Joseph (husband to Mary, the mother of Jesus) and Joseph of Arimathea (the man who helped bury and entomb Jesus). Enjoying great popularity in the English-speaking world, the name has countless variations in other cultures and their languages. History has shown that even your average Joes can grow up to be strong, dedicated leaders–just look at former Vice President Joe Biden and Nez Perce's Chief Joseph!
