Eóin originated in Ireland, an early medieval adaptation of the Latin Ioannes.

Eóin is the oldest and most consistently-used Gaelic form of John in both Irish and Scottish Gaelic.

It was usually rendered into English and Scots as John, in one of many different spellings.

The modern Scottish Gaelic form Iain appeared sometimeafter 1600, perhaps not until the 19th century
having evolved inthe northern dialect of Gaelic.

Ian, an English form of that name, appeared in the 19th century.
