Ephraim, by Francesco Hayez

Ephraim (Hebrew: אֶפְרַיִם/אֶפְרָיִם; Standard Hebrew: Efráyim; Tiberian Hebrew ʾEp̄ráyim/ʾEp̄rāyim)–"double fruitfulness" ("for God had made him fruitful in the land of his affliction"). The second son of Joseph, born in Egypt (Gen. 41:52; 46:20). The first incident recorded regarding him is his being placed, along with his brother Manasseh, before their grandfather, Jacob, that he might bless them (48:10; comp. 27:1). The intention of Joseph was that the right hand of the aged patriarch should be placed on the head of the elder of the two; but Jacob set Ephraim the younger before his brother, "guiding his hands wittingly." Before Joseph's death, Ephraim's family had reached the third generation (Gen. 50:23). He has been identified by Ahmed Osman as Ay, alleged son of Yuya, who in turn has been identified as Joseph.
