It is also used as a surname, and as a patronymic such as Johnson. It is derived from the Hebrew name YOCHANAN, "Yahweh (God) is gracious", and was the name of several important Jewish rabbis, as well as Yochanan ben Zechariah (John the Baptist) and Yochanan ben Zibhdi (John, the beloved apostle of Jesus and author of the Gospel of John). The name Yochanan was transliterated into Greek as Ioannes and Latinized as Johannes. Johannes became the Germanic Johann, the Slavic Ivan, the Irish Eoin, the Spanish Juan, and the French Jean. In the 11th century, William the conqueror brought the name to England The name John was the number one name in England from the middle of the sixteenth to the middle of the twentieth century but was avoided by the English royal family as a harbinger of bad luck. King John, who signed the Magna Carta in 1250, was considered a villain, and two princes named John died at an early age."

Owing to the extreme frequency of John as a given name, it came to be used, like its accepted English synonym Jack, as a common appellative for a man or boy of common or menial condition, and, in its different national forms, English John, French Jean, D. and G.
