origin: French


Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: God has Given

Want a little John? Don’t name your son Jonathan. Interestingly enough, the two names aren’t actually connected at all. Jonathan’s Hebrew root is in Nathan, not John. Nathan’s not a bad option these days -- and though Jonathan’s still a solid choice, it is starting to feel a little stale. It peaked at an average of 18 in the ’80s, and just slipped out of the top 25.
