Write about your first name. Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?
Its a nice name, never liked being called joey since it was Dennis the menaces’ buddy. Joseph was too, adult like. now that I live among a lot of Spanish it gets said Jo-el. Which is actually closer to the real meaning.
(el ) is Hebrew for God, jo is , i don’t know but maybe we can say its close to the Hebrew for Jehovah…….because Biblical the name Joel means the Lord is God.
I think its like saying the God , holy one who has created all out of nothing but his word, is not only so big that he holds all the elements. That he not only being to big and far off, is no longer far off in his son Jesus who is the Lord but also God. He being Emmanuel is undead God with us.
