Footnotes: [1][2]

Johnson is a surname of English[3] and Scottish origin.[4] The name itself is a patronym of the given name John, literally meaning "son of John". The name John derives from Latin Johannes, which is derived through Greek ? I?ann?s from Hebrew Yohanan, meaning "Yahweh has favoured". The name has been extremely popular in Europe since the Christian era as a result of it being given to St John the Baptist, St John the Evangelist and nearly one thousand other Christian saints.[5] Johnson is the [1] second most common in the United States[1][6] and 154th most common in the world.[1] As a Scottish family name, Johnson is occasionally a variation of Johnston, a habitational name.
