Meaning:gift of God
Can’t decide between John and Jonathan? Combine them! That first H sticks out, but maybe that’s the point. Expect your son to do some explaining when spelling his name out loud (“It’s Jonathan with an H after the ‘jo.’”)—it’s that unusual—but here’s something positive: Your boy will distinguish himself from the Jonathans of the world with that extra letter, as proved by Johnathan Joseph, the Houston Texans cornerback.
