I love this name! It sounds cute for a kid and mature for an adult. I like it much better than the overused ‘Jonah’. I would definitely consider using this one day!

If only the horrible Jonas Brothers didn't exist I wouldn't have anything against this name. They're getting popular again :(

Surprised no one's mentioned "My Name is Jonas" by Weezer. Great song from a great album. Guess that's why it's my username on this site.

Jonas Savimbi (August 3, 1934 - February 22nd, 2002) was an Angolan Military and Political leader who founded the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA).

First waging a war of independence against the Portuguese, he later waged a 26-year long Civil War, with the help of Apartheid South Africa, against the communist People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) government, which in turn was supported by Cuba, After Decolonization.

After being fatally wounded in a shoot out with government troops, UNITA ended it's violent war against the MPLA and became a major political party to this day. Most southern Africans see Savimbi as a traitor for collaborating with the Apartheid government of South Africa.

Despite the Jonas brothers association, I still like this name a lot. The Jonas brothers aren't even famous anymore, so I doubt teasing would be a big problem for a child named Jonas born this year. It's a very masculine and strong name, wayyyy better than the ugly and childish name Jonah.

I don't care for this name. It makes me think of the hideous Jonas Brothers.

Most popular name in Norway. Can't help wonder if this is because of our foreign minister, Jonas Gahr Støre.
