I am trying to improve on my question and am having trouble. The linked duplicate I believe is not helping. My question was mark as a duplicate to a poor received question also does not answer may question. How can I separate my question from that one? Any ideas?

I asked: Where did the name Jesus originate from? which is related but not the same as the question below.

Is Jesus the real name of Jesus or is it some kind of translation?

I need the question to be well-received. If it cannot be made better I will be stuck in SE question purgatory for 6 months.

On most SE sites, the standard for duplicates is whether the answers are valid: your question is a duplicate of the older question because it's answer pretty well explains where the name comes from. The fact that it's downvoted and closed as a duplicate itself doesn't matter, it still has an answer to your question.
