    no less


    Two people are talking about someone named Issa (Muslim name for Jesus). Following is the dialogue:

    A: Issa Karpov. A Muslim first name and a Russian last name. What does that tell us?
    B: That the boy is confused.
    A: And no patronymic. Is he the son of nobody?
    B: Issa... Jesus no less.

    What does "no less" mean here?

    Thanks for the answers

    not a teacher

    I think these definitions will give you a good idea of the meaning of "no less" when used in this way.
