  1. John says:

    When I was born in the 1980s, “John” was declining in popularity as being perceived as too traditional and common. (Think “John Doe”.) Lots of “Shane”‘s, “Sean”‘s and “Ian”‘s and “Jon”‘s, but very few “John”‘s. So, many of my classmates and contemporaries to this day assume my full name to be “Jonathan” since that was the more common name for my age group. I always thought I could just run with it and enjoy the option of a cooler version of “John”. However, this is not so. The two names are derived from entirely different Hebrew words and thus going by “Jon” would seem somehow disrespectful to my parents. I might as well start calling myself “Bob”. It’s not the same name.

      That’s just silly. Call yourself whatever you want.

      I don’t think it’s silly, John, and I kinda know where you’re coming from. My son’s name is John (he was born in the late 70s). He was named after his deceased grandfather on his father’s side, which meant a lot to his father. So I know there are a lot of people who feel they are disrespecting their parents if they use another name.

      That being said, at one point around 4th grade, John wanted to go by his middle name and we were fine with it and let him do it, even at school. That only lasted a year and then he went back to his given name forever. The only thing that ever came from that phase was there were a few kids that still called him Scott.
