Why don't we have people named Jesus?

Why don't we have people named Jesus?
Does the Bible forbid naming your son "Jesus"?

This is a serious question.

You don't know many Hispanic people, do you?
If there is a god, I want to believe that there is a god.  If there is not a god, I want to believe that there is no god.

Actually I don't. I live in Canada.

But why can't white men be named "Jesus"?

Because it'd sound like they were cussing at themselves.

Jesus Brewer.

See?

Letter J wasn't in use till the Middle Ages, so the Bible won't proscribe using a name that starts with J.

And Scripture says we're supposed to call Jesus Immanuel instead. Not that anyone bothers . . .
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

They can, it just isn't a thing in white culture. Jesus is a super popular name in Hispanic culture though.
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."
