(So the somewhat popular name John Jones is kind of funny, when you think about it!)

The Welsh version of John is “Ieuan” or “Iwan,” which were Anglicized to “Jones” over time. The name was first recorded in Wales in the 16th century and quickly spread throughout the country.

Today, Jones is one of the most common surnames in most of the English-speaking world.

Famous people with the last name Jones include musician and producer Quincy Jones, actress and singer Shirley Jones, golfer Bobby Jones, and the legendary James Earl Jones.
