Meaning of the baby name YUSHUA.


YUSHUA (شيث).  An Arabic form of Hebrew Yehoshua, or the shortened form Yeshua (q.v.), meaning "Jehovah (is) salvation."

A letter from Shaubech, king of Armenia Minor, in the Samaritan Book of Joshua, (XXVII) styles Joshua Lupus Percussor, "the murdering wolf"; or, according to another reading in the Book Fuchasin (p. 154), Lupus Vespertinus, "the evening wolf."  The letter of Shaubech is as follows:
    "From the assembly of the giants, the confederated, well-known, far-famed, victorious, triumphant, mighty in courage, protected with armor, and the foremost of all mortals.
    To Yûshuâ the shepherd, the son of Nun, and to his people.  Peace from us unto you.
    We know, O murdering wolf, what thou hast done in the cities of our associates, and that thou hast in murder destroyed all of their leaders and sent them down to the bottom of the lowest depths,... And the reason of this (thy success) was, that then we were distracted by discords and dissensions, and a lack of unity in our councils; but now understand, O murdering wolf, that we are coming unto you with all the kings in harmonious agreement, with spirits in concord, and tongues that have pledged mutual covenants, and hands that have been struck together..." (Miscellaneous Notes & Queries, vols. 9-10, 1892)
