Meaning:dove; gift of God
Jonas is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin. A variant of Jonah—the Hebrew and Muslim prophet and titular character who is swallowed by a whale in _The Book of Jonah—_Jonas means “dove” and “gift from God.” This latter meaning is a lovely sentiment for the new blessing in your life. Due to its origins in all three Abrahamic religions, Jonas is wildly popular as a given name and, to a lesser extent, as a surname. The Turkish, Arabic, and Persian equivalent is Yunus.
