Etymology[edit]

Probably an alteration of the earlier Ōsēe (q.v.) — the form used in the Vulgate — chosen for consistency with the Latin names of some other Biblical characters (such as Andreās, Matthiās, and Michaeās) and with its ultimate Hebrew etymon, הוֹשֵׁעַ(hoshe'a); an intermediate Ancient Greek etymon of the form *Ὡσηᾱς (*Hōsēās) does not occur.
