"I named my son Jonas exactly 1 year before Jonas Brothers hit the scene. What was EXTREMELY unique and rare became more popular over night. We always get told, however, that his name is beautiful. Jonas David." Oct. 29, 2018:
"My Swedish husband and I have a nightmare trying to get people to recognise the S in his name. Many confuse it with Jonah or even John! In the Swedish pronounciation it sounds more like Yu-Nus but we've given up and just say Jonas." Sep. 14, 2008:
"Jonas is a great name. I've had it for 35 years. I've met only one other person with the name. It was a real shocker for the both of us. Lately it has become very popular." Jan. 22, 2007:
"My 2-yr-old son's name is Jonas. We hear a lot of compliments on the name. I've learned to introduce him as Jonas-s-s-s with an emphasis on the S, so people don't mistake it for Jonah." Jan. 11, 2007:
"We introduce Jonas with a hard J to friends but pronounce it with a Y to family. We love this name because it pays respect to his scandinavian heritage but also gives him a choice when he is older." Dec. 17, 2005:
"This is my son's name. I'm really happy with it, except that stranger's often call him Jonah. I love the fact that we don't know any one else named Jonas, yet it doesn't fall into the "weird name" category." Nov. 30, 2005:
