First Name Directory - Starting with J

This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.

Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.

João is the Portuguese form of the name John. The diminutive is Joãozinho or Joãozito and the feminine is Joana or Maria-João. It is widespread in Portuguese-speaking countries and therefore also the name of several notable people and places:

José is a predominantly Spanish and Portuguese form of the given name Joseph. While spelled alike, this name is pronounced differently in each language: in Spanish [xoˈse] and in Portuguese [ʒuˈzɛ] (or [ʒoˈzɛ]). In French, the name José, pronounced [ʒoˈze], is an old vernacular form of Joseph, which is also in current usage as a given name. José is also commonly used as part of male name composites, such as José Manuel, José Maria or Antonio José, and also in female name composites like Maria José or Marie-José. José is also a Belgian Dutch male given name, pronounced [ʒoːˈzeː], and for which the female written form is Josée as in French. In Netherlandic Dutch however, José is a female given name, and is pronounced [ˈjoːseː]; it may occur as part of name composites like Marie-José or as a female first name in its own right; it can also be short for the name Josina and even a Dutch hypocorism of the name Johanna.
Júlio is a Portuguese masculine given name. The equivalent in Spanish is Julio.

In the data base are, apart from modern and traditional first names also American, Arab, Germans, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Dutch, Northern, Russian, Scandinavian, Slavian, Spanish, and Swedish first names.
