Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Irish
Meaning:Of John; God is Gracious
DeSean is an interesting name with a long line of origins laying claim. It can be considered Hebrew, American, and Irish. The Hebrew portion of it is certainly the oldest, highlighting the connection to John—as in John the Baptist or any other number of biblical Johns. Then, eventually, when Christianity was brought to Ireland, the name John was translated to Sean in Irish. Then, as time moved on and more cultures collaborated, this name took on new creative pieces and became the masculine and faith-driven name of DeSean.
