The name has been perennially popular as a Jewish name; it was also taken up by the Puritans and other Christian fundamentalists. The name has long been in regular use in North America but was uncommon in Britain until the 1990s. Well-known bearers of the name include the American singer and entertainer Joel Grey ( b. 1932 ), the West Indian cricketer Joel Garner ( b. 1952 ), and the American film director Joel Coen ( b. 1954 ). The French form Joël is also used in the English-speaking world.
