Etymology & Historical Origin - Jovanni

Jovanni is an Americanized repurposing of Giovanni which is the Italian form of John (and means “God is gracious”). Actually, Jovan is the Serbian and Macedonian form of John, but Jovanni is just an American invention – a typical American elaboration on an already existing name. In fact, Giovanni is one of the most successful Italian names in the United States right now (almost on the Top 100 list). As is so typical in America, respellings keep appearing: Giovani, Giovanny, Jovani, Jovanni and Jovanny. They look misspelled to us, so they look a little silly. But a lot of people like the “respelled” effect on common names. They think it differentiates their child from the rest of the pack. And it does. Just maybe not in the way they want.

Popularity of the Name Jovanni

Jovanni appeared on the U.S. charts in 2002. His sudden appearance on the Top 1000 list is just a byproduct of Giovanni’s current success. Jovanni, however, is a pretty rare (mis)spelling and hardly ever used. The name hangs out at the very bottom of the list. We won’t be surprised if the second Giovanni loses his current trendy appeal, this one will head for the hills.
