Wasn't Jesus's dad called Joseph? He's probably more famous than most of these.

Although now I look again it doesn't say 10 most famous people named Joe. And I don't know how you would let people guess his name - Joseph Christ?

1. Joseph was not the father of Jesus, rather he was the husband of Mary.

2. Christ is not the surname of Jesus, it is just a word derived from the Ancient Greek "Christos", which was really just a translation of the Hebrew "Moshiach", which means "Anointed" and can be transliterated into English as Messiah.

Probably "of Nazareth." Laughed at Joseph Christ though haha.

Joseph would most likely have been called Joseph of Nazareth and if Jesus of Nazareth is not acceptable, then how about Jeshua Bin Yusef (Jesus, son of Joseph). Joseph was his earthly father, so he would have carried his name.

But who was the father of joseph

Level 90

Joseph's father is given as Jacob in the book of Matthew. Luke refers to Heli but this is thought to be focussing on the maternal line so it would be best translated as son in law of Heli.

Agreed. The Clash was big when I was 4 or 5. I don't think I would know anything about them if Big Audio Dynamite II hadn't released an album when I was in high school.
