Ever since the 16th century, Johnny has been the distinctive and affectionate nickname for the classic John, and they both mean 'grace'. Today, this charismatic little name is given to both baby girls and boys in its own right. Adorably cute, Johnny has a distinctive retro feel to it, and there's a reason why. It's because this lovely name topped the charts in the 1950s, a time we now associate with it!
