Eanes, Sephardic Jewish origin

Classification: Query
Surnames: Eanes
"The Sephardic Eanes surname translates to “son of John”. John being a Jewish name, the Hebrew word for John is Yohanan. In Jewish naming customs, most surnames were adopted from the father’s first name. For instance, if a father were named Yohanan, his child’s surname would become Ben Yohanan (son of John.) Eanes in reality is the Portuguese way of saying its true name, ben yohanan בן יוחנן
