Baby Name John

Meaning of John - What does the name John means?
Gender: Boy Name
Origin: English
Name Meaning: The most enduring of all the Biblical names, John is derived from the Middle Latin Johannes, which is from the Ecclesiastic Late Latin Joannes, from the Ecclesiastic Greek Ioannes, a derivative of the Hebrew Yehanan, a short form of Yehohanan, which is from yehchanan (Yahweh is gracious). The name, borne in the Bible by several important characters, was also borne by many saints, twenty-three popes, and many kings throughout Europe and England. First used by the Eastern Church, John was brought back to England after the first Crusades. It quickly became established, and during the last half of the 17th century, 28 percent of all males were baptized John. See John (Biblical Names)
