Comments for YUNUS:

Isn't it the Arabic equivalent of Jonas, and doesn't its usage in Turkish come from Arabic? [noted -ed]

Yunus is also the Turkish word for "dolphin". I'm not sure whether this usage is derived from the given name or just a coincidence.

Yunus is also used in Chechnya (a traditionally Islamic country) as a first name for men. Since Chechnya is forced to follow the Russian naming system, it is also found as a middle name in the form of a patronymic, namely Yunusovich.
