The word John appears in the Greek New Testament as
Ioannes, Jehovah is a gracious giver. Ioannes
derives from the Hebrew Yawchanan (Johanan),
Jehovah has graced. Yawchanan derives Yahowchanan (Jehohanan), Jehovah has graced.
Yahowchanan derives from Yahovah (Jehova),
existing one (the proper name of God), and Chanan, to be gracious. Yahovah derives from the root
Hayah, to become or to exist. Hayah derives
from Hava, to be.
