John is the English form of the Latin Iohannes, itself a form of the Greek name Ιωαννης (Ioannes) which was derived from the Hebrew יוֹחָנָן (Yochanan) meaning "YAHWEH is gracious."[1] Jack is derived from Jackin (earlier Jankin), a medieval diminutive of the name John. Jack is often regarded as an independent name instead of only a nickname.[2]

Arjuna (अर्जुन) is a name of Sanskrit (Indian) descent meaning "white, clear."[3] In Hindu texts, Arjuna was the name of a hero, the half-mortal, half-divine son of Indra who bested even his father in combat.

Korrapati (కొర్రపాటి) is a location surname. It combines the Telugu పతి (pati) meaning "belongs to" with the place, in this case an area called Korra or Korrapalem.[4]
