To whom was sarcastic about Moses' mother's name.

You speak English, so call her Yochebed, but since the Jews spoke Hebrew, her name would be Yokheved. 95% of the names in the Hebrew Bible (when in English) sre Anglisized, and the person would not know their name.

Shlomo Joshua

etc.. So let the person know that just because you know the Anglisized version on a name, does not make you correct. The Hebrew name was 1000's of years before the Anglisized, Germanized, Francosized, Russified, etc. versions. Most Hebrew names come to Christians through the Greeks.
