Other Origin(s):Hebrew, Irish
Meaning:God is gracious
DeShawn, sometimes stylized as Deshawn, is a boy's name with American roots. This modern moniker follows the trend of names starting with De-, a convention that can be traced back to the surnames of French aristocracy. Deshawn puts a contemporary spin on the pleasantly vintage-sounding Shawn, also spelled as Sean, an Irish variation of the Hebrew name John that means "God is gracious." With this invented name, you can help your little one to feel connected to your faith, as well as show them how grateful you are to have them.
