Meaning of the baby name YANKO.

  

YANKO.  A variant form of John (q.v.), meaning "Jehovah's gift (or grace)."  Usage:  Armenia, Bulgaria (Янко), Czech Republic, Italy, Poland.

... It may here be observed that the surnames of the principal Armenian families terminate with the patronymic adjunct yan (son), in the same manner as the Russian Christian names end with vitch.  They are generally preceded also by some distinctive epithet, such as long, short, red, yellow, &c.  Their christian names are like those of Western Europe, viz., Agoop (Jacob), Grigor (Gregory), Yanko (John), and so forth... (Three Years in Constantinople, White, 1846)
