This popular Spanish form of John can easily be paired with other names like Carlos, as in Juan Carlos I, the former king of Spain. Juan runs the gamut, from everyman to monarch, from explorer to president. Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon traveled across the Atlantic Ocean and became the first governor of Puerto Rico. While Juan was recently eclipsed by names like Mateo, Santiago and Alejandro, it remains constant and true.
