This is a good case in point because the name has changed in 
meaning drastically in its journey through the various languages.

In hebrew this was a normal, everyday and very popular name.
In English, this is a name which can only rightly be used by 
the Messiah and anyone calling himself Jesus would be looked on 
as either a crackpot or someone with severe delusions of grandeur.

As an example, the way that the English name Jesus was
derived from the semitic Yeshua. Starting in Hebrew or
Aramaic, to Greek, to Latin, and then to English. It
is stated that the original meaning ends up with the
name Jesus through all of these language processes.
Would the list members consider this the norm?
