who named him Jesus, Joseph or Mary?


according to Matthew Book, Joseph was commanded by the Angel to keep his name Jesus.

But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.

And she will have a son, AND YOU (Joseph) ARE TO NAME HIM JESUS...  (Matthew 1:20-21)

the above verse is contradicted by Luke according to his Book, Mary was commanded by the Angel Gabriel to keep his name Jesus.

"Don't be afraid, Mary," the angel told her, "for you have found favor with God!

Listen! You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, AND YOU (Mary) ARE TO NAME HIM JESUS. (Luke 1:30-31)

what a contradiction, neither of the writers were aware who the angel commanded to name him Jesus. seems like the Holy Ghost gave them mix messages.
