Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier, is a very good song!

Johnny has Gone for a Soldier is actually called Shule Agra, and is Irish, but I do agree, it is very moving.

Johnny Cade from S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders" bore this name.

Johnny is a cool name. I don't like the name John because that's too boring, but Johnny is wounderful. I also love S.E. Hinton's book 'The Outsiders', it's the best. Her character Johnny is my favorite, then he died.

Song: "Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!" (also featured in the "Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe." (2005))

Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny how you can love! Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny heavens above! You make my sad heart jump with joy and when you're near I just can't sit still I'm so "Oh, Johnny Oh Johnny how you can love...
― Anonymous User  6/1/2006
I agree. Everytime I hear this name I start to sing "Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh! How you can love." It does have a nice ring to it though cause it sounds like someone who does know to love. :)

Personally I think it's kinda nice and trendy but a bit too common and folksy lol.

There was also a song in the 50's called "Go, Johnny, Go!."

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Johnny Lever? He is a famous comedian in India and is really a bonetickler.

This is my father's name. This is his actual name, I mean that it is not his nickname, for John. He actually gets called John as a nickname.

Johnny is a cool name. Most Johnnys are fun and attractive people.
― Anonymous User  12/7/2006
I like this much better than just plain old John. It's fun and interesting. I think a Johnny would be a really cool guy to hang around with.

Singer and songwriter Johnny Logan. He has won the Eurovision Song Contest twice, with "What's Another Year?" and "Hold Me Now". Love them both! He is Irish and his real name is Seán Patrick Michael Sherrald.

Johnny C., the titular character in Jhonen Vasquez's "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac" comic.
Ozzie Scribbler  9/6/2008
I personally think this name is great. It's adorable, but not feminine. My dad's name is John, and his parents and siblings call him Johnny. I think it's more interesting than plain John. I know a few Johns and Jonathans, and I always like to nickname them Johnny if they let me. =]
smurphul  8/16/2009
Johnny is both a sweet and masculine nickname, but a nickname only.

The figure skater Johnny Weir! The epitome of fabulousness.

Any boy will be lucky as to have his name.
Kenley  3/27/2010
Surprised no on has mentioned Johnny Ramone. Sure, his name was really John Cummings, but I don't think anyone knew him by that. And Johnny Cade from S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders.
izzilla  6/28/2010
This is a good name. But I'd much prefer it as a nickname for John than an independent name.
― Anonymous User  9/26/2010
I like John, but I don't like this nickname. Johnny doesn't sound childish; instead I'll gripe about the image it gives me. It gives me two unpleasant images: the first is of a redneck, and the second is of an arrogant blond guy who harasses and beats up innocent people. The latter is probably due to the evil Johnny Lawrence from The Karate Kid. Please don't call your kid Johnny.

Johnny Clegg, musician and anti-apartheid activist, born 1953. He sung in the band Juluka alongside Sipho Mchunu, as well as the band Savuka. His full name is Jonathan Clegg.
AnastasiaE  8/28/2012
Sounds like the name of an all-American jerk. Oh well, at least it's a better nickname than Jack.
Buneary  10/25/2012
Johnny Cade, a character from S E Hinton's book The Outsiders, is a famous bearer of this name.

Johnny Cash was actually given the name JR Cash at birth because his parents couldn't think of a name (how sad!). He later changed his name to John R. Cash because the army would not let him enlist if his name was just initials.

I have always had a fondness for Johnny as a nickname for John (or Jonathan). Jack is nice, too. It is pleasant, youthful, fetching, sturdy, and won't sacrifice having a more "polished" name in a professional setting, since it (hopefully) is only being used as a diminutive (although, Johnny could still probably work if he really wanted to go by it- that just furthermore proves that it is a great, versatile sobriquet).
Francesca  7/29/2013
I think Johnny is a really cute name for a guy. I like it. John is way too common but I like the name. I dislike Jonathan.

Johnny Galecki is an American actor best known for his role as Dr Leonard Hofstader on the American sitcom The Big Bang Theory.
OttilieMaisie  4/3/2015
Omg, this is a really cute name for a guy! I think Johnny is even awesomer than John. I see no problem using the name Johnny as a standalone name on the birth certificate (I'm very tempted to do so!). This name rocks! ;D.

Johnny Bravo was a cartoon on Cartoon Network from 1997-2004. The main character (Johnny Bravo) was a narcissist who hit on every girl he met and always got rejected. Great cartoon but terrible bearer, depending on how you wanna look at it.

"Go Johnny Go" is a popular song sang by Chuck Berry.

I like this as a nickname but as a full name it's way too childish and informal. That's why I only like it if it's a nickname for John or Jonathan.
― Anonymous User  6/29/2016
Johnny is the most obvious and right nickname for John while Jack is originally derived from the French name Jacques or Jaques (Jacob/James). Tradition and etymology are not always the same and this case shows that.

Another man who bore this name was Johnny Cash (1932-2003).

Johnny is such a great name. The name of hot bad boys! Johnny Depp, Johnny Terris, Johnny Rotten etc.
― Anonymous User  2/28/2018
This name suits people with rare surnames better. For example, Johnny Gustafson would cause less confusion than Johnny Smith.
XYKLONE  3/14/2018
Quite different.
