Meaning:God is gracious; Gift of Jehovah
Exuding an effortless cool factor, Jonny is a masculine name and hip relative of Jonathan and John. Hebrew in origin, Jonny is traceable to the ancient name Yochanan which means "God is gracious" or "Yahweh has given." You may be forgiven for thinking Jonny carries notions of being a divine gift, but don't let that easy swagger fool you. Jonny's etymology carries the weight of innumerable saints, royals, and politicians. It's quite the list to be humbled by, but no doubt Jonny will take it in their stride.
