    Name Meaning

    Welsh: derivative of Evan , from Efan, Ifan, medieval forms of Ieuan (from Latin Johannes, the source of English John), dating from c. 1500, with the post-medieval patronymic suffix -s. Welsh Sion was a separate borrowing of English John, and Evan (Ieuan) and Sion developed as independent names.
