I really like this name Javan. I have seen it spelled Javen before for a boy. I like the history of this name. This was the name of Noah's grandson in the bible. Also how it means Greece in Hebrew. I was once on a website that suggested the meaning could also mean Angel of Greece.

From the same as yonah, a Hebrew word meaning dove. Yonah is the Hebrew form of Jonah.

Yes Javan has the meaning of Greece. But it actually means Angel of Greece. I love this name. It is a great name for a boy.

Actually, it means 'dove,' same as Jonah. Although I think I prefer the name Javan to Jonah. Something about the J and V sounds together in the name.

This is a wonderfully historic name. It is biblical and also historical in Greece. Also this is the name of Noah's grandson. Noah as in Noahs Ark. I love the meaning of Angel of Greece. And I love the sound of the name. This name is a classic. It would age well and it is adorable for a little baby boy. I just love this name.

Even though this name ends in an, it is not a trendy name. Some find names trendy due to spelling and sound of what is "in" at the moment. But this is a historical name. It is not made up or kre8tive like some trendy names. This name is biblical and very historical. It is a classic unlike trendy names. It also isn't very popular. I like it that way. I don't like overly popular and trendy names. So I am so intrigued with this name. I love it!

Another site listed a possible meaning for Javan as "effervescent", as in high-spirited or active.

Javan means "miry" as in an unsure foothold.

Javan was likely a very intelligent dreamer who liked to avoid certainty and burdensome commitments. He had great difficulty making decisions, and turned out to be a bit of an outcast in society. This ultimately drove him to the sea, which he fell in love with. It was his only means of escape from a cold world that was always demanding things from him. Finally, at long last, he could be care-free. Just him and the soothing sound of ocean waves.

I looked through what the Hebrew scholars had on this and they all agree at least it is a pun. Yes, it is a cousin of the word "dove" like Jonah aurally, and yes it has part of the meaning of the word "miry" (the root), and was used to name Greece (place name). However, all the letters added together spell the meaning "Mud-man". It was an understood pun in Hebrew to refer back to Adam without being called by the same name.
