    The name Mohammad is given to sons to show respect. Why is the name Jesus not given t

    The name Mohammad is given to sons to show respect. Why is the name Jesus not given the same respect?

    Many cultures pass on names of those they wish to show respect to. The Muslim community pass on the name Mohamad more than Christians do with the name of Jesus. This name respect is lacking in the Christian cultures.

    I think it is due to the fact that none in the Abrahamic cults can justify Yahweh/Jesus’ genocide of mankind.

    Yahweh’s son Jesus has not been deemed worthy of respect for moral reasons. Christians recognize the imperfections and agree with the ostracising of the name Jesus. Hence their not passing on the name and showing disrespect. Jesus is as unworthy to literal reading people in the myriad of Christian cults, as is Yahweh.

    Are the myriad of Christian and Catholic cults showing a lack of respect for the name of Jesus as compared to the respect Muslims show the name Mohammad?

    The hard "J" is a modern invention, so his name was never Jesus. It was closer to "Yeshua" or "Joshua".

    So Joshua, or Josh, would be naming your son after Jesus.

    Though probably lost parents of Joshes don't know that.

    Do Muslims consider Mohammed to actually BE God? In the way that Christians see Jesus? Genuine question. I don't know.

    It's different to name your kid after a prophet than to actually name him God.

    I know a lot of people in Mexico named Jesus, pronounced Hay-sus. All Catholics.

    How it is spelled or pronounced is not quite relevant to the question of why Jesus is not respected enough to name children after.

    Granted.

    Mexico seems to be an exception for some reason but I was looking at the bigger world picture.

    I guess in the west when are taught their is only one messiah...Jesus. If you start calling everyone Jesus it kinda defeats the specialness of the name.

    We don't name out sons Santa either. It would just make Christmas less special.

    Not just Mexico. Travel through Central and South America and you will see the same thing.

    Yet we name our children after those we respect to accentuate the specialness, not decrease it.

    For that reason, I cannot accept your reasoning.
