Like Jonah from wdw :))
I don't like this. The "ah" makes it look ugly for some reason. But, there are names that are worse than this!
I love it.
It's so sunny and handsome! I love it! Great name for a boy! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ It ages so well! I love it! Better than the boring, unattractive, mean, super old, old testament names, like Benjamin, Elijah, etc, which I despise! Jonah's out there, be proud of your name!
One of the few Old Testament names I would consider using, it has a strong sound and just a vibe which I really like, prefer it over Noah and Elijah - the other Old Testament names I would potentially use are Samuel, Nathan and Reuben, but this is right up there, great name.
Not bad! Pretty neat, you can’t really go wrong with this name.
Not a good name I like Jonas better.
Jonah is a very nice name.
Ever since I was little and heard the name Jonah in 'Sleepless in Seattle', I fell in love with the name. The movie became a favorite of mine. Many years later, when I got pregnant I had a mile long list of names for my baby boy... Mateo, Giovanni, Amadeo, Ethan, Leo, Damien, Isaiah, Elias etc. But when he was placed in my arms at the hospital, I knew for certain, he was Jonah! Plus, the name means 'dove' which is a plus. He's 7 now, and it fits him. He's smart, funny and has a big heart. No regrets xxx.

The Chinese equivalent of the name Jonah is "约拿" in simplified characters and "約拿" in traditional. Both have the Pinyin pronunciation of "yuē ná". Please add this to the list of related names in other languages.
A superb, fine and great masculine name. :-)
The English name came as many from a mistake. The Bible was first printed in Germany. When it was translated into English the name remained in the german form. So Jonah Should have been translated Iona since J is pronounced as I in german and h is silent.
Ps: usually the simplest solution is the correct one;
A very fresh, airy, pleasant name, but it still has a nice edge of masculinity. I like it a lot.
I love this name, it's soft but masculine. Also a very cute meaning.
I think this name sounds and looks more feminine than masculine. I know that as far as Christians are concerned, it's traditionally a boy's name, but I personally place it right up there with Meredith as sounding more appropriate for a girl (hey, I live in North America; give me a break). Both the -ah ending and the meaning make it sound feminine to me. I suppose I could compromise and use Yonah on a girl instead of Jonah. But I really like that J. For a boy, I'd use Javan. It means the same thing as Jonah, but it sounds a little more masculine (although it could also work on a girl).
This is my son's name. We call him Jo or Jojo for short. We picked it because the Bible story is meaningful to us, and makes it known, but it's still not too common. He's always the only one in his class with it, but nobody has trouble pronouncing it.

I like it. Really like it. The guy in the bible is a great reason to call him that, and I'm not religious. Talk about how you can change!
I never did like the sound of this name, but the dorky Jonah Goldberg has really made me hate it.
I like this name alot, if you wanted to, you could even call your son Jon for short if he doesn't like the name Jonah! But I like Jonah and I might use it if I ever have another kid. But only for a boy.
