And there is the character "Johannes the Seducer" from the book Either/Or.

I think it is a strong, handsome, classic name.

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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 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 Boldizs√°r 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 Boldizs√°r. I am stuck for another baby boy's name, other than Johannes. Johannes it too beautiful. :-)
