Johannes Hendrikus Hubert "John" de Mol, Jr. Is a Dutch media tycoon. De Mol is one of the men behind production companies Endemol and Talpa. De Mol, a well-known personality in the Netherlands, acquired his fortune producing television programmes. In 1997-1999 he developed the highly popular reality television series Big Brother with his eponymous production company, John de Mol Produkties. In 1994 his company merged with Joop van den Ende TV-Producties into Endemol, but it still functioned on its own. He also produced Fear Factor, Love Letters, 1 vs. 100 and Deal or No Deal for Endemol. De Mol sold his share of Endemol in 2000 to Telefonica, but continued to serve as creative director until 2004. In 2005, he was listed on the Forbes Magazine list of the 500 richest people in the world.

I'm Chinese, living in Canada and I LOVE the name Johannes! It doesn't matter if the father of my children is White, Yellow or Black. I wanna name my son Johannes! :)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was baptized as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. He went by Wolfgang (obviously) since he was a child.

I do love the name Johannes; it is very beautiful. I don't have a hard time imagining a little boy with this name anymore! I also like Boldizsár for a little boy, but when I saw newborn pictures of a little boy, I knew that mine would have to be a Johannes, not a Boldizsár. I am stuck for another baby boy's name, other than Johannes. Johannes it too beautiful. :-)

I love the name Johannes! I'm from Hungary, but my fourth great-grandfather, Johannes Schillinger, was from Germany. My Mom's father's side of the family is completely German. I want to name my son Johannes! It is not popular at all in Hungary, Janos is. I don't like the name Janos, I think Johannes is more classier and more gorgeous. :) It is hard to imagine a little baby, a little boy with this name, that is my main problem with Johannes, but then again, the name is absolutely beautiful.

I know the most awesome Johannes, and the spelling of this name is one of my fave things about it. It can be cute and refined at the same time and stay really unique and interesting.

This name is gorgeous. It was the name of my fifth or sixth great-grandfather from Germany. I want to use it as one of the middle names for my son.

I love this name so much; it's my favorite German name. I picture a calm, soft-spoken, pensive man philosophizing in his study.

Definitely one of my favorite names! It is classic but unique. I think it would suit a mature, thoughtful and silent man in his best year.

Johannes was a character in the book "The Blood Countess" by Andre Codrescu. In the book, young Elizabeth Bathory was curious about "the Turkish way" and had Johannes demonstrate on another boy. (The Turkish way is anal sex, by the way.)

Hey, it was a good book, despite all the sex! And I like the name Johannes.
