I'm really not sure. I love the look and feel of Yehoshua, and the sound is so ... traditional! But Joshua would be so much easier to live with. I think in the end I would probably go with Joshua but I'm not sure.

I do know of a real-life Yehoshua, though! I read a blog written by a woman with sons named Yehoshua and Eliyahu. So it's not so strange to see it on an actual person. It doesn't surprise me to read about her son at all, if the weirdness factor is a consideration for you.

Definitely Yehoshua! Love it! It's got a familiarity to it, but it's not popular like Joshua. He'll likely be the only one in school with that name, but it's not "out there", ya know? I also love the traditional-ness of it.

And I wouldn't think Yehoshua was anything but Jewish. I am also a fan of spelling names the easiest way possible (Poor Tovah constantly has to spell her name).
