Josué


Explanation:
This is the way the Biblical character Joshua is named in standard Spanish-language Bibles. It is also a name used for men, in Mexico at least. When it is a given name, some people spell it differently, usually by inserting an "h" in the unlikliest places, e.g., Joshué, Jhosué, Josueh, Josuhé, etc. But again, the standard translation is Josué.

Josué


Explanation:
Biblical names vary in most languages. The word "Joshua" is itself the English translation of the original Hebrew meaning "Help of Jehovah". Webster's Dictionary.

Josué


Explanation:
As all of us agree, this is the equivalent Spanish proper name. However, if you are not translating the name from a religious context or biblical bibliography (ie. your Josuah is just the name of a man) our practice, as with any proper name, is to avoid their translation.
