Meaning of the baby name YESHAYAHU.

  

YESHAYAHU (יְשַׁעְיָהוּ).  A variant form of Hebrew Yeshaya (biblical Isaiah), meaning "salvation of Jehovah." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

... Ours is an age of archaeology, revival, and research; and in no field is research more active than in Biblical and other Oriental history.  The grand familiar names, which have had a charm for us from childhood, which have kindled the veneration of a long roll of centuries, are all being "restored" to satisfy an antiquarian purism.  We shall soon be invited to call Moses Mosheh, as his contemporaries did... The prophet Elijah is Eliyahu; and the prophet Isaiah is now metamorphosed into Yeshayahu.  Imagine how our descendants will have to re-write the lines:—O thou my voice inspire, Who touch'd Yeshayahu's hallow'd lips with fire—And the teacher will have to explain to our grandchildren that "Isaiah" is an old vulgarism for Yeshayahu... (Eclectic Magazine, v. 43, 1886)
