Meaning & Origins

Meaning ‘God heals’ in Hebrew; it is borne by a king of Judah, whose story is recounted in 2 Kings 22–23. This was fairly frequently used as a given name in the English-speaking world, especially among Dissenters, from the 18th to the late 19th century. Following several decades of disuse, this name has become increasingly fashionable since the 1970s, especially in the U.S. The spelling Josias was also in use among Puritans from the 16th century. The most famous English bearer is the potter Josiah Wedgwood (1730–95). In North America this was a recurrent name in the Quincy family of Massachusetts; the best-known Josiah Quincy (1744–75) was a pre-Revolutionary patriot, who died while returning from arguing the cause of the American colonists in London.
2,198th in the U.S.
English: from Old English Englisc. The word had originally distinguished Angles (see Engel) from Saxons and other Germanic peoples in the British Isles, but by the time surnames were being acquired it no longer had this meaning. Its frequency as an English surname is somewhat surprising. It may have been commonly used in the early Middle Ages as a distinguishing epithet for an Anglo-Saxon in areas where the culture was not predominantly English—for example the Danelaw area, Scotland, and parts of Wales—or as a distinguishing name after 1066 for a non-Norman in the regions of most intensive Norman settlement. However, explicit evidence for these assumptions is lacking, and at the present day the surname is fairly evenly distributed throughout the country.
