The name Jordan can refer to several things. As a name, it comes from the Hebrew ירדן‬ (Yarden), meaning "one who descends" or "to flow down". 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, in Serbian, Jordan, and in Catalan Jordà. Jordan can be either a given name or a surname. As a given name, the English form is unisex, but other languages have feminine forms (in Italian Giordana, in Spanish and Portuguese Jordana, in French Jourdaine, etc.).

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