Also there was another 'John' (Yonah) the father of Simon ha Kephah (Simon Peter) cf: Blessed art Thou Simon Bar Yonah ......so many Johns (whether Yonah, or Yohanon or Yohananon) so little time !

a reply to: Sigismundus

And my, are there many Simons! The Heb. name שמעין «Shimeon» is of unknown origin and the meaning is obscure. It will typically be related to the Heb. verb שמע «shama» which means 'to hear' or Heb. שם «shem» 'name', but according to BDB it can also be understood as 'offspring of wolf or hyena': Heb. זאב «zeeb» means 'wolf' while the Horite name written Heb. צבעון «Tsibon» means hyena (Strong's H6649), both words constructs of an unknown root meaning 'to dip', and reflected in Heb. צבע «Tseba» 'dyed fabric' (dipping into [yellow] dye) and the Heb. verb צהב «Tsaheb» 'to shine' and connected to an unused root meaning yellow— which would all be rather fitting to the first bishop of Rome, Shimon ha Kephas bar Jonah, Petrus Pontifex.
