Nazareth was the village in which Jesus spent his early life. In those days people did not have surnames and so, in order to identify people with the same name (Jeshua was not an uncommon name at the time), they were referred to by the place they came from.

Sometimes, too, the name of their father was used, so Jesus was also sometimes referred to as 'Jesus son of Joseph' or 'Jesus bar Joseph' ('bar' means 'son of' in Hebrew). The Scots, Irish and Welsh also used this system and the very common Scottish and Irish surnames such as "O'Donnell", "MacAllister", "McArthy", "Fitzgerald" and Welsh surnames like "Pritchard" all begin with a word which means 'son of' (O'-, Mac- or Mc- and Fitz- in Irish and Scots Gaelic and 'Ap-' in Welsh all have the same meaning).

It is the only Jesus who is born in Nazareth, there is no other Jesus living on different places means on the bible, the Given Name by God, you know that He is mention also in Islamic holy bible, but i think it's mention different from the Christian holy bible, i think it's because of the geographic and different languages names, anyway it's Nazareth not Nazarareth hehe

Back in the days of Jesus, people were referred to as their name and where they were from, hence Jesus of Nazareth. They also attached their father's names, like Saul ben Robinson which would mean Saul, son of Robinson. That distinguished people that shared their name with someone else which was quite common back then. Other religions are interesting, aren't they? By studying other religions we see that they aren't very different and we all worship the same God, we just call Him different names and have different rituals for worship.
