See Sean as a last name

Anglicized spelling of Seán (pronounced ‘shawn’), Irish equivalent of John. The name has always been common in Ireland, but since the 1960s has frequently been chosen (usually without the accent) by parents who have no Irish connections. One influence on its popularity has been the actor Sean Connery (b. 1930), of James Bond fame.
