Middle name Evangelist for Johann?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Witman, Widmann, Reicheneder
I have an ancestor, with a marriage record that lists his name as Johannes Evangelist Widmann. He is also listed as a sponsor on a baptism, for a friend's child, listed as Johannes Evangelist (last name Reicheneder).

These records were found in my local church, St. Peter's in Reading, Pennsylvania. The church was German, but the records are in Latin. Any ideas if Evangelist is some sort of middle name, or a key to something else?

My ancestor's name has been listed as John J. Witman on a few documents, so I don't believe Evangelist is his middle name, but I'm lost as to what else it could be. Any insight?
