name "Jesus

Jesus is the English transliteration of the Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iesous, pronounced ee-ay-SOOS) which itself is the transliteration of the Hebrew יְהוֹשׁוּעַ (Yehoshuah, pronounced yeh-haw-SHOE-ah) which was often contracted to Joshua. In the original Hebrew, the translation would be "Yahweh (or, the Lord) is salvation". So, yes, we are definitely calling Him by His correct name-- the name His own disciples called Him by.
