The name has now fallen out of the top 100 male baby names in the UK, having peaked in popularity as one of the top 10 names throughout the 1960s, while remaining roughly constant in popularity in the USA. Back in 1900, Ian was the 180th most popular male baby name in England and Wales. The original Irish Gaelic and Scottish Gaelic form of the name is Sen (or Seathan). Ian is a variant spelling of the Scoticisations Eathain, Ein, and Iain. Other Gaelic forms of "John" include "Seonaidh" ("Johnny" from Lowland Scots), "Seon" (from English), "Seathan", and "Sen" and "Eoin" (from Irish). Its Welsh counterpart is Ioan and Breton equivalent is Yann.
