Meaning:God is gracious
For a town as trendy and in love with all that’s young and new, Hollywood has a lot of entertainers with this old-fashioned nickname, which is now a legitimate given name. There’s film king Johnny Depp and Johnny Galecki of The Big Bang Theory. Then there’s reality TV star Johnny Knoxville and Olympic figure skater/TV commentator Johnny Weir. The name has a familiar, chummy feel to it with an Oscar-worthy meaning, “God is gracious,” from the Hebrew version of John.
