John /dʒɒn/ is a masculine given name in the English language. The name is derived from the Latin Ioannes and Iohannes, which are forms of the Greek Iōannēs (Ἰωάννης), originally borne by Hellenized Jews transliterating the Hebrew name Yochanan (יוֹחָנָן), "Graced by God", or Yehohanan (יְהוֹחָנָן), "God is Gracious". Jack is a diminutive of John, but can also be a name in its own right.

John (in all its forms) may also be a surname (or the root of a longer surname such as Johnson or Johnston), or the name of a place.
