Background of my username
- "Jos" was a nickname at school. I wasn't too happy with it, but started to like it, as a kind of "Geuzennaam", pointing to an acceptance of myself, despite or including other person's opinions; and also for the meaning of the name in Abrahamic faiths, which is hopefull. From Wikipedia:
- Joshua: "The English name Joshua is a rendering of the Hebrew language "Yehoshua", meaning "Yahweh is salvation"."
- Yeshua (name): "Yeshua was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ ("Yehoshuah" - Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second Temple period. The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which comes the English spelling Jesus."
- "Jonathan" is a highly romantic comic made by the Swiss author Cosey which I like very much. But, oh irony, it's also a Biblical name:
