Jordan: Boys Baby Name Meaning

Jordan Baby Name

The name Jordan means ‘to flow’ and refers to the river.

Jordan is derived from the Hebrew yarden (to flow down, descend). The name is that of the chief river of Palestine, in which Jesus was baptized.

Jordan originated as a given name in the Middle Ages, being bestowed upon those baptized in holy water said to be taken from the Jordan River.

For Jews, the river is a symbol of freedom since its crossing was the final step of Moses’ and the ancient Israelite’s return to the Promise Land after years of abject slavery in Egypt.

For Christians, the River Jordan is sacred because it’s where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. During the Middle Ages, around the time of the Crusades, Christians would pilgrimage to the Holy Land and return with a jar containing holy water from the river.

Some of the earlier medieval versions of the name were Jordanis and Jourdain; while medieval English folk sometimes used the diminutive Judd.

Versions of this name in other languages are: Jordanes (German), Jourdain (French), Giordano (Italian), Jordão (Portuguese) and Jordán (Spanish).

Famous people who share the name Jordan:

Jordan of Osnabrück, a German political writer; Jordan Belfort, American author, The Wolf of Wall Street; Jordan Bonel de Confolens, a troubadour.
