I love this name along with Johan but only pronounced like jo-han rather than yo-han and therefore I could never use it :/

I know a baby Johannes!!! He is the cutest thing and the name fits him perfectly! His big sisters call him JoeJoe lol It's so refreshing to see this name instead of Aiden/Kaden/Jackson/Jacob

I love this version of John. Johannes, or not the shorter Johan/Johann, is definitely a top middle name consideration for a future boy of mine.
