José is the Spanish and Portuguese form of the given name Joseph, all of which derive from the Hebrew Yossef ("The Lord will increase"). While spelled alike, they are pronounced differently in each language. The Spanish J sounds like the English H, although in some dialects it sounds like a guttural G or K, while the Portuguese J is pronounced like the French J of Jean and Jacques.
