Truly a title of many guises, Johan has been openly embraced across Northern Europe, enjoying many variations throughout Germany, Denmark, and the Netherlands. Yet its most revered form is the English John, whose lineage includes two leading figures of the Old Testament, poets, philosophers, emperors, and rulers.
