For decades, Jonathan was ranked in the top 20 or 30 boys' names. It is a safe and straightforward choice for parents. Jonathan appears at least 15 times in the Bible. The best mention is for the bromance between Jonathan, a skilled archer and the eldest son of King Saul, and the future king David. Novelist Jonathan Safran Foer and talk show host Jon Stewart are both namesakes with plenty to say. Nontraditional spellings of this name include Jonathon, Johnathon, Jonathyn and Johnathan.
