Josue is the Portuguese and Spanish spelling of the Hebrew name Joshua. This masculine title is believed to come from the Hebrew “Yehoshu'a,” which means “God is salvation.” Joshua is an important figure in the Hebrew Bible. He succeeded Moses as the leader of the children of Israel and led them to the promised land. Josue first appeared in the US name charts in 1972 and has been slowly growing in popularity since. Josue is not quite mainstream yet, being a relatively new name in America’s Hispanic and Latino populations. Whether you wish to stay ahead of the trends or honor your faith with a fresh title, Josue is a stylish and contemporary choice.
