Jordan means “to flow down” in Hebrew and is most known for it’s connection to the Jordan River in Israel.

Jordan is considered a biblical name, with Jesus being baptized in the Jordan River. Crusaders would also bring back river water to baptize their children; some of these children were given the name Jordan in honor of the baptism.

Jordan was a hot unisex name at the end of the millennium, hitting its peak in 1997. The name’s popularity has mostly trended together for both boys and girls.

In recent years, the name’s popularity has declined some for both genders. However, the traditional spelling of Jordan has had a faster fall for girls. Instead, girl parents today are favoring a feminized spelling of Jordyn.

Interestingly, feminized Jordyn’s ranking has remained mostly steady since it came on the scene in the early 1990’s. While classically-spelled Jordan has dropped 383 spots from its peak, Jordyn has constantly landed in the mid-100’s-200’s range.
