Back in those days, people didn't have surnames as we do. They were given names, then identified by association with family or place. So you might have James, son of John (the origin of our modern surname "Johnson"), or James of Rome (which could have evolved into James Roman). Jesus is called in the Bible "Jesus of Nazareth", using his given name and hometown as his form of identification.

Hope that helps.

Oh, and occupation was also used as a form of identification. So, "James the fisher" would have evolved into the modern name "James Fisher", and "James the baker" becomes "James Baker".

Jesus' name was Emmanuel. Surnames didn't come into being in Europe & England until after the Battle of Hastings with William the Conqurer in 1066 AD. The Chinese have used surnames since about 3000 BC.

Very good points. The Bible lists many names of Jesus that are meant to describe His nature to us. Emmanuel meaning "God with us," We can also mention that the name "Jesus" was derived from the Hebrew name Yehshua which means "Yahweh (God) saves." This was the name pronounced to Joseph when the angel appeared to reassure him about Mary's impending delivery.

According to Jewish practices; men were named x(given name) son of y(father's name). Since the name Jesus was formed from the Jewish name Yehoshua (or Joshua) his name would have been

Yehoshua ben Yosef.(ben being the Hebrew for "son of")
This naming method exist even now although Jews took surnames when yhey were demanded by secular authorities in the many places that they came to dwell in.
While an angel ascribed to him the name Emanuel, he would not have been called that in common usage; nor would he have been called Joshua ben God. That would have gotten him in big trouble .

How about Christ Jesus or Jesus Christ.
Jesus was not the blood son of Joseph, but of God through the Holy Spirit.
Yehshua is also correct.

Yeshua ben Yosef (or Yeshua bar Yosef) is the original Aramaic name for Jesus the Nazarene. His parents, siblings, disciples, and followers called him by that name. The name "Jesus" is a misspelling and mispronunciation that resulted from the translation of Yeshua's name after his death, first into the Greek Iesous (pronounced "ee-ay-SUS"), and then from the Greek Iesous into the Latin Iesus. No one during Yeshua's life (prior to 30 CE) ever uttered the name, "Jesus." The letter "j" wasn't in the English language until the seventeenth century, so even in English, no one spoke the name "Jesus" until after that time.

Actually, no. The Old Testament says he would be called Emmanuel, but no one ever called Him that. The name Emmanuel is translated as "God with us." Actually, at the time Jesus was around, he would have been called "Jesus, son of Joseph." The word "Chist" was not a name, but a title, from the Greek word "Christos", which means the "Annointed One."
