  • Seems very similar to both Joshua and Jose'.

    Actually, after some research, Moses apparently changed Hosea's name (meaning Salvation) to Joshua (meaning God Is Salvation), probably to tell Hosea/Joshua to trust God throughout his hardships.

    Names starting with 'H' tend to "sound softer" than other names, and with no rough sounds to follow through (R's or T's), it gives off a sense of softness in English.

    But this can be overlooked due to how rare H-starting names there are in the English language, so whether or not it's an awesome name is completely subjective.

    • Hosea (/ˌhoʊˈziːə/ or /hoʊˈzeɪə/; Hebrew: הוֹשֵׁעַ, Modern Hoshea, Tiberian Hôšēăʻ ; "Salvation"; Greek Ὠσηέ, Hōsēe

    • Like "Isaiah" but with "Ho" instead of "I".
