The name "Shawn" is a variation of the name Sean. It is a name given to boys. It is generally pronounced the same way it is written. The name is of English origin. Variations of Shawn include Shaun, Shawnel, Shawnn, Shaughn etc. To understand the meaning of the word we will have to look into its etymology.

The name was originally the Hebrew name John which meant "God is gracious", this name gradually evolved into the unisex name Sean and from this we get the name Shawn. Shawn is also sometimes seen as a last name as in Wallace Shawn an American actor or William Shawn who was the editor of The New Yorker. Shawn is however primarily a first name, prominent examples being wrestler Shawn Michaels, baseball player Shawn Estes, television presenter Shawn Wilsie etc.
