Meaning of the name:

From "Yônah", Jonah is a name of Hebrew origin which literally means "dove". Many times mentioned in the Bible, Jonah is the name of one of the twelve little prophets of Jesus. For disobeying an order from the Lord, he was punished in the belly of a whale for 3 days. Although relatively rare, Jonah is not a name that has completely disappeared from current usage. Jonah was a real success during the 17th century, but was not introduced in France until the 20th century.
