When Jesus is prophesied in Isaiah 7:14, it says "Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel."

Why did the angel tell Mary to name him Jesus (Luke 1:31) instead of "Immanuel"?

Jesus (Jehovah saves) reflects His main mission in His Incarnation.
Immanuel (God with us) reflects a secondary means in bringing His people to glory (by shepherding us). The first involves the Shepherd laying down His life for the sheep. The second involves the Shepherd leading and guiding the sheep.

I generally agree with this. Yahshua is Yah, the short form of YHWH, and Shua, which in Hebrew is saves. Together though, it takes on the meaning of "Yah (YHWH) has become our salvation." How (?), by being manifested in the flesh. So he is Emmanuel (EL with us) as well. He has MANY names, all generally around the tetragram, YHWH.

For example, YHWH-Yireh= God out provider. YHWH-Nissi= God our banner. YHWH-Shalom= God our peace. YHWH-Rohi= God our Sheperd.(etc.) Yahshua= YHWH has become our salvation.

Peace.
