Joplin Origin and Meaning

The name Joplin is girl's name of English origin meaning "son of Job".
Used as a first name for a handful of girls every year, Joplin could be seen as a distant cousin of other -lin names, like Caitlin, Brooklyn and Braelynn. We think it works even better as a musical middle name possibility for fans of Janis... or Scott. Both great connections — albeit very different from one another.

Joplin is also the name of a Missouri city known for being a stopover for the real-life Bonnie and Clyde and deadly tornados in both 1970 and 2011.
