International names of Jesus:

I found it interesting that different cultures around the world have different pronunciations, spellings and sounds of the name of Jesus. Guess I had never really thought about it. 99% of the cultures who spell 'Jesus' like the English versions, that aren't English, have some type of accent mark.

International Names of Jesus:

English - Jesus
Spanish - Jesus
French - Jesus
Italian - Gesu
Dutch - Jezus
Irish - Iosa
German - Jesus
Russian - Nncyc (the "N's" are reversed)
Albanian - Jezusi
Belarusian - Icyc
Croatian - Isus
Finnish - Jeesus (yeah, that's 2 e's.)
Indonesian - Yesus
