This name is the older English way of spelling John and it is pronounced the same way in England.

Panic! At the Disco's bassist's name is usually referred as Jon Walker, though his name is Jonathan.

It's a better spelling and seems almost unique compared to the boring John spelling.

I think this name is a newer form of John, and I like it a lot better. Every John that I know, has told me that when he or she (I have met one little girl named Jon Grace, but I wouldn't name my daughter Jon), has always misspelled their name when they were little. They spelled it Jonh, or Jon, simply because you don't even hear the H sound in the name, and it was hard for them to remember to put it in when they couldn't hear it. So I prefer Jon.

Jon of Jon & Kate plus 8. His name is short for Jonathan. One of their sons (I believe it's Aaden) his name is Aaden Jonathan Gosselins, after his dad.

I'm very much surprised that nobody's said anything about Jon Anderson, of the progressive rock band Yes! He's a rather famous bearer of this name, and when I think of the name Jon (as spelled without an H), I usually think of him.

Jon looks boring and incomplete without the H, and it makes me think of Jon Gosselin.

I have two JON's-

1) Jon Anderson From the band Yes. He is the singer. I love his voice. It's so good yet cute and elf like. He is like one of my fav short guys

And 2) Jon Cryer from Two and a Half Men. He plays Alan. And he is... the awesome... the great... DUCKIE! From Pretty in Pink "Hello and Welcome to another day of higher education".

Jon Ronson, a Welsh journalist, documentary filmmaker, radio presenter and nonfiction author.

Unless it's short for Jonathan, I don't like this spelling. "Jon" as a full name feels kind of pseudo-trendy, whereas "John" seems more weighty and classic.
― Anonymous User  9/2/2014
I agree with the comment above me

John as a full name is more former & classic whereas Jon is more trendy.

Seems incomplete without the H, I would prefer this name if it were short for Jonathan.

Jon Moritsugu is an American cult/underground filmmaker. His movies are satiric, protopunk deconstructions of popular genres and formats with scabrous and pointedly garish results. The New York Times describes them as "funny, anarchic, provocative and exhilarating." Influenced by the nihilism of Jean-Luc Godard and Guy Debord, Moritsugu's films are often defined by their "lo-fi" aesthetic and were initially shot on 16mm film for a gritty, visceral quality. He states that he often "pay(s) less attention to narrative flow and storyline and put(s) more emphasis on sight, sound and spectacle" to create a movie that is "like a live punk/hardcore show." The works themselves are often absurdist comedies that feature actress, co-writer, stylist, and wife, Amy Davis. Perhaps best known for his cult classic, Mod Fuck Explosion, Moritsugu's films have been screened at Sundance, Cannes, Berlin, Toronto, Rotterdam, Venice, New York Underground, Chicago Underground, MoMA, Guggenheim, Whitney and numerous other festivals and museums. In the year 2001 he received the Moving Image award from Creative Capital.
