Meaning & Origins

From the name of a river in Ireland. It is not clear why it has become so popular as a given name; compare Clodagh. In part it may also be a transferred use of the Irish surname, Gaelic Ó Seanáin ‘descendant of Seanán’ (a diminutive of Seán). Shannon is not found as a traditional given name in Ireland itself.
131st in the U.S.
English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish (Simón), Czech and Slovak (Šimon), Slovenian, Hungarian, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the personal name, Hebrew Shim‘on, which is probably derived from the verb sham‘a ‘to hearken’. In the Vulgate and in many vernacular versions of the Old Testament, this is usually rendered Simeon. In the Greek New Testament, however, the name occurs as Simōn, as a result of assimilation to the preexisting Greek byname Sīmōn (from sīmos ‘snub-nosed’). Both Simon and Simeon were in use as personal names in western Europe from the Middle Ages onward. In Christendom the former was always more popular, at least in part because of its associations with the apostle Simon Peter, the brother of Andrew. In Britain there was also confusion from an early date with Anglo-Scandinavian forms of Sigmund (see Siegmund), a name whose popularity was reinforced at the Conquest by the Norman form Simund.
382nd in the U.S.
