LANGUAGE FAMILY:
afro-asiatic > semitic > central semitic > hebrew
ORIGIN:
hebrew 
NAME ROOT:
YÂSAPH > YEHÔSÊPH > IōSḗPH > YOSEF
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.

8
Numerological Values:
8

A person with name-number 8 is ambitious, confident, practical and has a great ability to execute plans. They are achievers and seek to reach the top of their field through hard work.

Chakra Number:
8: The number of the Chakra "Etheric Body"

At the base of the skull or Cerebellum and is also found to be linked to the causal chakra just above the crown chakra to the left in the etheric body. This center enables the individual to achieve advanced out-of-body projection, etheric projection, spiritual perception, and spiritual wisdom. I use the word spiritual here because these abilities and ideas are larger than the self and the earth and is were the ability of remote viewing resides.

Color meaning:

Black is the color of the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, creating an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world. In color psychology the meaning of the color black is protection from external emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world, providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities, insecurities and lack of self-confidence. In times of fear and uncertainty black contains the energy of the threatening unknown. In a positive state, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility.
