God is gracious
Pronounced SHAWN (and mispronounced “seen”), Sean is the Irish version of John and was one of the top choices for boys in the US for decades. Although its status has fallen somewhat recently as other Irish boys' names like Liam, Logan and Finn have pulled ahead, Sean is still very popular in its native Ireland, often landing in the top two spots. Sean is unisex but most often given to boys. Music mogul Sean Combs lent it a cool factor, and so did seven-time James Bond actor Sean Connery (who relinquished his birth name, Thomas, for his middle).
