Littlejohn Name Meaning
Scottish and English: distinguishing epithet for the smallest of two or more bearers of the common personal name John. Compare Meiklejohn. In some cases the nickname may have been bestowed on a large man, irrespective of his actual personal name, in allusion to the character in the Robin Hood legend, whose nickname was of ironic application. Translation of French Jeanpetit.
