What's My Name mean?

Literal meaning

"A powerful gypsy curse."


History

Taken from the Greek for "Hey presto, there it is" under appalling conditions, the name John was originally used ineffectually to refer to a breed of goose, before being pulled from a fire that killed its variants and diminutives.


Famous Johns

2. John de Grating, reputedly trapped for seven days under a fallen monument to the world's seventh highest-rated episode of Mr Pastry;
