Like many surnames, the name Johanne is taken from a personal name common in the era when surnames began to be used. Johannes is the Germanic form of John, which comes from the Hebrew name "Yochanan," meaning "Jehovah has favored me with a son" and which became a very popular personal name in Europe because of two saints by the name, Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist.

Johanne Early Origins



The surname Johanne was first found in Germany, where the name Johanne came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as numerous branches of the same house acquired distant estates, some of which were located in other countries. Through the acquisition of these estates as well as their important contributions to society, the family successfully elevated their social status.
