Other Origin(s):Russian
Meaning:God is gracious
From Hebrew and Russian influence comes Yvan, a boy’s name meaning “God is gracious.” Possibly a variant of John, and most definitely a respelling of Ivan, it enjoys very many associations with both name groups. On the one hand, you have the likes of kings and monarchs, whereas on the other, you have memorable characters in literature. Either way, Yvan is a moniker that can inspire your little one to make their mark and leave a legacy, while trusting in god all the way.
