Though Deshaun is a new enough name, it comes from a long line and origins all around the globe. It might surprise you to know the name Deshaun actually comes from John. John throughout history has had a wide array of variants, but this direct line goes from John—as in John the Baptist, for this religious association—to Sean, Shawn, De-Shawn, and eventually Deshaun. The leap from John to Sean can be attributed to translations and cross-cultural collaborations. From there, the journey is all about Anglicization and creative spins on the old classic.
