Jordan

Jordan is an English unisex name, the name of a country in the Middle East named after the river that runs between it and Israel. The name comes from Hebrew yarden meaning “to go down, descend” or “flow down”. It was a popular name in the Middle Ages because Crusaders and pilgrims brought the water back from the Jordan River for baptisms and and christenings since Jesus of Nazareth was baptised there by John the Baptist. Jordan is also a surname derived the given name.

Origin: Proto-Semitic
