The name John (like Kellogg, pictured here, from No. 34 company Square Peg Packaging and Printing) has been bestowed to emperors, kings, popes, patriarchs, and two well-known saints—John the Baptist and John the Apostle, who wrote the Book of Revelation. While the name's popularity has been in perpetual decline since the 1800s, John remains a prominent baby name, most likely for its abundance of nicknames and misspellings—85 to be exact. Jon, Johnnie, Johnny, Jonny, Jack, Jackie, and Jonathan are all common alternatives. Famous Johns include Kennedy, Travolta, and Lennon.
