In Lithuania and in Latvia, this name is pronounced YO-nas. My great grandfather's name was Valerijonas, and he pronounced the latter part of his name that way. [noted -ed]

The main character in The Giver, one of my favorite books, is named Jonas. When I first read it, I thought about using the name for my future son if I have one. Then the Jonas Brothers came along... Yup.

I really love the name Jonas. It is one of my favorites. I think it can be youthful without being forever young. I also think it can be unique without being too strange. Contrary to popular belief, Jonas ranked in the top one thousand in the USA. I really hope it doesn't get too popular however, because I won't be able to use it on my future son if that happens!

Jonines, the Lithuanian midsummer festival, is celebrated on June 23, the eve of the feast of John the Baptist's birth. If your name is Jonas, this is your name day.
