Meaning & Origins

From the Latin form, Io(h)anna, of Greek Iōanna, the feminine equivalent of Iōannēs (see John). In the New Testament, this name is borne by a woman who was one of Jesus's followers (Luke 8:3; 24:10). She was the wife of the steward of the household of King Herod Antipas. The name was regularly used throughout the Middle Ages in most parts of Europe as a feminine equivalent of John, but in England it has only been in common use as a vernacular given name since the 19th century. Celebrated British bearers of the name include the novelist Joanna Trollope (b. 1943), the actress Joanna Lumley (b. 1946), and the concert pianist Joanna McGregor (b. 1959).
495th in the U.S.
English: habitational name for someone from a place called Elham, in Kent, or a lost place of this name in Crayford, Kent. The first is derived from Old English ǣl ‘eel’ + hām ‘homestead’ or hamm ‘enclosure hemmed in by water’. There is also an Elam Grange in Bingley, West Yorkshire, but the current distribution of the name in the British Isles suggests that it did not contribute significantly to the surname.
