Origin: Welsh

Meaning: God is Good

Fun fact! Evan is actually the anglicized version of…John. (Evan comes from the Welsh name Lefan, which comes from Yochanan, the same Hebrew root as John.) It’s been steadily climbing the charts since the early ’80s, and has been firmly in the top 100 since ’83. In Celtic, Evan means “young warrior,” which is kinda fun -- or kinda scary depending on your perspective. If you want to get fancy, spell it the Irish Gaelic way: Aoibheann. No, just kidding. Really. We’re kidding.
