"Yo, I'm a Josue. It is not pronounced Ho-sway. I'm sad to hear that people are making their Spanish name sound more English by referring to themselves as Jay or Joshua. Maintain your heritage, to do otherwise is to stifle diversity. If all ethnic names become "Americanized" then we lose our identity." May. 4, 2016:

"The name has been good to me. Good conversation starter. Although it makes guys jealous and intimidates people who cant promounce it. It has its pros and cons. I would rather had another name to be honest or a middle name." Oct. 27, 2014:
