An old coworker who was a seminarian said it was H for Hernandez.

google is your friend


As a child, "H" was a middle initial meaning "Holy" and included to honor Jesus while his name was being used to scramble young brains into malleable balls of pure fear. Most folks bellowed the simple "Jesus Christ," so children felt privileged to hear that added "H."

I think the first time I ever heard that was from Richard Pryor in a movie. His character's girlfriend did something that surprised him (let's say her name was Julie) and Pryor exclaimed, "Julie, Jesus H. Christ!"

A kid in the scene asked, "Is that her whole name?"

I find it so charming when my neighbor exclaims, "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!"

One episode of "Designing Women" had Mary Jo go on a date with a priest. They went to a baseball game and after he game they were making small talk. Mary Jo said something along the lines of, " That was fun. And they had three guys named 'Jesus',"
