NAME ROOT:

NATIVE NAME ROOT:
YÂSAPH (יָסַף) YEHÔSÊPH (יְהוֹסֵף) IōSḗPH (Ἰωσήφ)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Hebrew name “Yehôsêph”, meaning “Yehowah has added, he will enlarge, God will increase, may he add”, which in turn derives from “yâsaph”, meaning “to add, increase, do again, increase, do again”. The name has enjoyed significant popularity in its many forms in numerous countries, and is especially common in contemporary Israel, as either "Yossi" or "Yosef". In the Old Testament, Joseph is Jacob's eleventh son and Rachel's first. In the New Testament, Joseph is the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. In the New Testament, there is another Joseph as well, Joseph of Arimathea, a secret disciple of Jesus who supplied the tomb in which Jesus was buried. Yūsuf ibn Yaʿqūb ibn Isḥāq ibn Ibrāhīm (estimated to have lived in the 16th century BCE) is an Islamic prophet found in the Qurʾān, the holy scripture of Islam, and corresponds to Joseph (son of Jacob), a character from the Jewish religious scripture, the Tanakh, and the Christian Bible.
