Etymology of the name SHON.
Meaning of the baby name SHON.

  

SHON.  A Scottish form of John (q.v.), meaning "Jehovah's gift (or grace)."  It is the same as Irish Sean, and Shawn.  See the feminines Seona, Seonaid, Sheona, and Shona.

    On a stone not far from Rob Roy's grave at Balquhidder, the following ludicrous inscription may be seen—

Beneath this stane lies Seonaid Roy,
    Shon Roy's reputed mother,
In a' her life, save this Shon Roy,
    She never had another.
'Tis here, or hereabout, they say—
The place no one can tell;
But when she'll rise at the last day
    She'll ken the stane hersel.

(The Celtic Monthly, Mackay, v.2, 1894)
