Sinjin is the phonetic spelling of St. John, which has always been a little confusing for me because I’ve always pronounced it as Saint John, pronouncing the saint. The pronounciation could be derived from Norman-French, much like Sinclair comes St. Clair.
Sinjin is both a first name and a surname, apparently originally used to honor John the Apostle. Saint comes from Latin sanctus meaning “holy, consecretaed” while John is a Hebrew name meaning “Yahweh is gracious”.
Origin: Latin, Hebrew
- St. John
