Evan is a Welsh masculine given name derived from "Iefan", a Welsh form for the name John. In other languages it could be compared to "Ivan", "Ian", and "Juan"; the name John itself is derived from the ancient Hebrew name יְהֹוחָנָן Yəhôḥānān, which means "Yahweh is gracious". Evan also comes from the Gaelic word "Eóghan" meaning "youth" or "young warrior" and Scots for "right-handed". In Hebrew, the actual non-proper noun, "evan/even/eban/eben", literally means "rock". It can also be the shortened version of the Greek name "Evangelos", or "Evander". The old English translation of the name "Evan" could also be interpreted as "Heir of the Earth" or "The King". The name is also occasionally given to females, as with actress Evan Rachel Wood. It may be encountered as a surname, but Evans is usual.
