Meaning:Greece; The Ionians
Jevan is a fascinating masculine name of Hebrew origin, uniquely tied to the realms of Classic Greece. A variant of Javan, Jevan means "Ionians" or "Greece" from the Hebrew Yāwān. The Ionians were one of the four major tribes that comprised the Greek population in Antiquity, renowned for their philosophy, art, and love of democracy. Jevan's ties to this significant part of Greek culture stem from the Book of Genesis, where Noah's grandson Javan is largely considered by Biblical scholars to be the ancestor of the Ionians and, therefore, often identified with the Greek mythological figure Ion.
