Last name origin & meaning:

Jewish and Gentile (from northern Europe to South India): from the Biblical name, Hebrew Yehoshuah, meaning ‘may Jehovah help him’. It was borne by the Israelite leader who took command of the children of Israel after the death of Moses and led them to take possession of the promised land. In Britain this was a popular name among Nonconformists from the 17th century onward; as a result, it is a typically Welsh surname, since Welsh surnames were comparatively late in formation.

Famous people who gave their babies this name: Lauryn Hill, Donny Osmond, James Van Der Beek
