Jovan is a male name of Slavic, Hebrew, and Latin origin. The name means “God is Gracious” and “Father” in Slavic languages and resembles the popular boy’s name “Ivan.” In Latin origins, Jovan is a variant of “Jove,” deriving from “Jupiter,” who is considered “King of the Gods” in Roman mythology. Jupiter—or Jove—is often regarded as Roman mythology’s answer to the Greek Zeus. This larger-than-life name is perfect for the parent who wishes to imbue everyday life with a little bit of Roman deity flavor.
