Etymology & Historical Origin - Giovanny

Giovanny is an Americanized respelling of the classic Italian masculine name Giovanni which itself is the Italian equivalent to John. Both the English John and the Italian Giovanni developed from the Latin “Io(h)annes” from the Hebrew “Johanan” meaning “God is gracious”. The name John – or Giovanni to the Italians – is borne by several important figures in the Bible. Most notably, John the Baptist who baptized Christian converts in the River Jordan and John the Apostle, one of Christ’s disciples and the author of the fourth gospel. John is one of the most enduring and heavily used names in the Western World, and it has produced many recognizable mutations in many different languages: Italian: Giovanni; Irish: Seán; Scottish: Ian; German: Johann; French: Jean; Spanish: Juan; Dutch: Jan; and Russian: Ivan – just to name a few. Giovanni is one of the most romantic-sounding of all the John names. Giovanny is not a legitimate respelling of Giovanni but rather an American corruption.

Popularity of the Name Giovanny

Giovanny with a “y” first appeared on the American masculine charts in 1997; soon thereafter another misspelled form of Giovanni appeared (i.e. Giovani with one “n”) in 2002. Both of these “Americanized” versions of the classic Italian boy’s name have emerged due to the growing popularity of Giovanni in the United States. In fact, Giovanni has come quite close to achieving a spot on the Top 100 list so as this name becomes more common in America, parents react by putting their own “creative” spelling stamp on the name. Giovanny is one such example.
