His Original Name Was Not Jesus Jesus originally spoke I think, Greek or Hebrew. Maybe even some Latin and Aramaic. This article says he was called Joshua or Joshua ben Adam... JESUS : The deity from Middle-Eastern Mythology And this article says his Greek variant is Ίησους (Iēsous)... (How do you pronounce this by the way?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus And you know I did not know that... The name "Jesus" is an Anglicization of the Greek Ίησους (Iēsous), itself a Hellenization of the Hebrew יהושע (Yehoshua) or Hebrew-Aramaic ישוע (Yeshua), meaning "YHWH rescues". "Christ" is a title derived from the Greek Χριστός (Christós), meaning the "Anointed One," which corresponds to the Hebrew-derived "Messiah".
