What was the exact Jewish name? How would you know what it was? We don't have it written anywhere. The apostles, whose writing was inspired, wrote in Greek. God didnt seem to have an issue with it.

Jews of the era spoke both Greek and Hebrew (or Aramaic). The Hebrew translation is Yeshua a variation of Joshua. BUt, the actual name is moot.

First century Christians thought they were Jews, not Christian. They worshiped in the Jewish Temple.
Actual Christianity without Judaism starts in the second century.

Yet you seem to have an issue with it. So a Greek name (Ioesus) is ok, an Anglicized name (Jesus) is ok, but a Hebrew/Aramaic name (Yeshua/Yehoshua) is NOT ok?

That's just being deliberately obtuse. Do you also have a problem with the way the name is translated in any other languages?
