Origin of the name YONAH.
Etymology of the name YONAH.
Meaning of the baby name YONAH.


YONAH (יוֹנָה).  Hebrew biblical Jonah (q.v.), meaning "a dove." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

    The Hebrew prophet-hero Yonah, (Jonah,) who is swallowed and vomited by the great fish or water-monster, is,—at least in so far as connected with the monster,—undoubtedly the offspring of the sun-myth.  It were idle to discuss the question, whether he had a real existence; in all probability he is partly a mythic, partly a poetic creation.  But we may note the similarity of the names Oanh, Yonah, and their close resemblance to one form of the Flood-name.  The name, at least, would seem to have crept into these stories from the Flood-legend. (An Outline of the Future Religion of the World, Smith, 1884).
