The name Jordan can refer to several things.

In Arabic it is Urdunn, in Italian Giordano, in Spanish Jordán, in Portuguese Jordão, in Dutch Jordaan, in French Jourdain, in Irish Iordáin, in Romanian Iordan, and in Catalan Jordà. Jordan can be either a given name (male or female) or a surname.

"Jordan" is also widely used as geographical name, such as in the Jordan Rivers in the Middle East and Utah.
