Arguably the most popular male name in history, the name John has been given to kings, popes, saints and every kind of man in between. The name’s origin is Hebrew and means "God is gracious."
Its variants include Jan in Dutch and Slavic, Johan in German and Swiss, Joh, Jean and Sean. A more contemporary trend with the name John is to hyphenate it with other names, including Paul and Luke.
