His real name was Jesus, known as Jesus of Nazareth due to the place where he was raised. The name Jesus was quite a common name in those days, being closely related to the name Joshua, a famous hero of the Israelites.

One of the remarkable things that we don't often realise about the name, is that the God of the universe came to earth in the body of a man named the local equivalent of "Bob".
