Meaning:He who Jehovah has favored with a son
Jaggli is the Swiss counterpart of the Hebrew masculine name Yochanan, meaning “he who Jehovah has favored with a son.” The name’s popularity soared around the 12th century when Crusaders returned to Switzerland from the Holy Land and gave their children biblical names to commemorate their pilgrimage. If you’d like your little one to grow up firmly rooted in faith, Jaggli is a fitting choice, one that even your Swiss ancestors might approve of!
