Jehovah increases or Jehovah is salvation
It’s a tricky one to say correctly, but here’s the phonetic version: hAW-suu-eh. In Hebrew, Josue—the Spanish version of Joshua—means “Jehovah increases; Jehovah is salvation.” In the Hebrew Bible, Joshua was an important figure as he succeeded Moses as the leader of the children of Israel and showed them the way into the promised land. Josue made it on the US naming charts in the early 1970s and has been getting more popular ever since.
