Etymology of the name YEHONATHAN.
Meaning of the baby name YEHONATHAN.


YEHONATHAN (יְהוֹנָתָן).  Hebrew biblical Jonathan (q.v.), meaning "gift of Jehovah" or "(whom) Jehovah has given."

4. The name "Yehoshua (Joshua)" is well attested as borne by the leader of Israel in the conquest of Canaan, but this name is compounded with "Yahweh," and therefore proves that this deity was known to the Hebrews at least as early as the time of the exodus.  If the name of Moses' mother, "Jochebed," be authentic and be compounded with "Yahweh," this will be another evidence in the same direction.  Judges 18:30 mentions Yehonathan (Jonathan) the grandson of Moses.  This is certainly a "Yahweh"-compound, and it seems as though it must have been given before the conquest, or at least so soon after that Canaanitish influence is unthinkable... (The Biblical World, v.28, 1906)
