Jordan Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine & Feminine; USAGE: English, French, Macedonian. OTHER SCRIPTS: Јордан (Macedonian); PRONOUNCED: JAWR-dən (English), ZHAWR-DAHNN. From the name of the river which flows between the countries of Jordan and Israel. The river’s name in Hebrew is יַרְדֵן (Yarden), and it is derived from יָרַד (yarad) meaning “descend” or “flow down”. In the New Testament John the Baptist baptizes Jesus Christ in its waters, and it was adopted as a personal name in Europe after crusaders brought water back from the river to baptize their children. There may have been some influence from the Germanic name JORDANES, notably borne by a 6th-century Gothic historian. — Jordan is another one of those oh-so-trendy unisex names. And, as often is the case, as it gains popularity as a girls name, it becomes less popular as a name for boys.
Historically, it comes from the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. The name had its heyday during the Michael Jordan era and has made a comeback as Jordyn. This name derives from the Hebrew “yarad > yardên”, meaning “descender, flow down”. In the Hebrew Bible the Jordan is referred to as the source of fertility to a large plain (Kikkar ha-Yarden), and it is said to be like “the garden of God”. The New Testament states that John the Baptist baptized unto repentance in the Jordan. This is recounted as having taken place at Bethabara. Jesus came to be baptized by him there (Matthew 3:13; Mark 1:9; Luke 3:21, 4:1).
This name died out after the Middle Ages, but was revived in the 19th century. In America and other countries it became fairly popular in the second half of the 20th century. A famous bearer of the surname is former basketball star Michael Jordan (1963-). — Jordan originates in Hebrew language and means “from a flowing river”. It was taken from the name of the Jordan River in the West Asia flowing to the Dead Sea. In Christianity, Jesus was baptised in this river by John the Baptist. Jordan is also the name of a country in the Middle East, as well as the name of several places in the United States. It can be used as both feminine and masculine given names, currently it is more popular for boys in the United States. It functions as a surname as well, the famous bearer being the retired American basketball player Michael Jordan. Famous Jordans: Jordan Ladd – actress, Jordan Hinson – actress, Jordan Todosey – actress.
