There are a number of Welsh equivalents: Ioan is another (it's the one I typed in, and it was accepted). Not sure Evan should be the answer that comes up though, as that's an anglicized version of Ifan.

Johann is actually short for Johannes. Shouldn't that be an answer too?

I mean, unless you type it completely out of order, you'll spell "Johann" while typing out "Johannes," so it shouldn't particularly matter that much overall.

In German "Hans" is a nickname for Johannes, not an independent name. Same goes for "Jan" (or , again, "Hans") in Dutch. They are nicknames for Johan. Much like Jim is a nickname for James.

Eesh, I got Johan as my first answer and then went "Hmm, Hans, maybe? Nah, I can't find any similarity at all, why bother trying..." ARGH. yet I guessed Giovanni, Ivan (got that one mostly because one of my Great Uncles was named that) and Sean....
