Jo-hahn, and no I wouldn't automatically think Jo for a nickname. I'd probabyl still with the fullname.

As for what I think about the name, it's ok. But I wouldn't personally use it.

I think Johan is a fine name, but I would never use it. To me it's a name that should be used by someone who's of scandinavian/german/dutch descent. I would prn. this name as Yo-hahn because that is the correct pronunciation. I do not think Jo would make a good nn as it is the incorrect pronunciation.

I would prn it Jo - hahn and would not automatically call him by a nn. I never do that anyway.

As for the name, I don't care for it much. Don't like the sound. Prefer Joseph and Jonas

yo-hahn, since thats the actual pronunciation therefore the Jo nickname doesn't make sense.
