Johnny

God is gracious
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 626
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 and a meaning that’s Oscar worthy: “God is gracious,” from the Hebrew version of John (which is the real first or middle name of all the Johnnys above).
