Hans: that awkward guy with good intentions who just ends up making everything 1000 times worse. I like the sound of it, but I have awful associations and can't get that image out of my mind.

Hans was the most common name in Germany between the middle ages and the mid 1900s. There were millions of people with this name (same like John in English speaking countries). Today it's hardly used in Germany as it sounds very old fashioned and quite often there are old farmers connected to it.

Hans is a very rare name nowadays, even in northern Europe where it was born. For me it's a good and strong name. It's one of the most classic variations for John.
