I have a Jerusha on my family tree - she went by Jerri.

Chasidah Says:


I've always loved Jerusha since I first heard it as a young child. Jerusha Hale is a character in James Michener's novel, "Hawaii". Jerusha forms the first 3 syllables of "Yer-OO-shah-LYE-eem", the Hebrew name of the ancient City of David, the modern "Jerusalem" w/ its overtones of Shalom/Peace! I prefer it with the "Y" sound at the beginning, too: Yer-OO-shah... to me, a very beautiful name!

A really unique and grounded J- name.

Catastroffy Says:


I have bad associations with this name because of an unpleasant woman who I know with it, and I don't like the last syllables either. That's strange though, because I like the Indian name Usha, which is pronounced the same.
