New Name: Vahn
,

Hi Jennifer,
I have named my son Vahn, I noticed it was not in your database, I have found it to be a male form of Siobhan and some of its meaning to be Justice. It was a name of a character in Legends of Legaia. I’m not sure of the origin, but I liked it as opposed to John (another male form of Siobhan). I thought you might want to add it to your database, so others can view it as an option. Maybe you can find its origin also.
Heidi

Hi Heidi,
The Irish female name Siobhan is a form of Joan, which is a feminized version of John. Therefore the meaning of Vahn would be “God is Gracious.” Vahn could also be a variation of the name Vaughn, an English surname meaning “small.”
Thank you for the submission, we will be adding it to the database.

Sincerely,
Jennifer
