I was reading my journal from my Camino last spring and came upon an entry from walk from Najera to Santo Domingo that I forgotten about. I was walking with 2 men from the UK, Paul & Gray. One suggested a game to name a famous John! It lasted almost a hour and really was alot of fun! Just when you thought it was over someone would come up with another! Gave my brain a work out! One of many cool personal interactions with my fellow pilgrims. Gearing up for this years Sept/Oct. Camino!

Anybody mention John Aseo?

By the way, at one place I worked someone would go out and buy lunch for a half dozen people. Once back an announcement would go out over the speakers saying "A, B, C to the lunchroom. D, E, F to the lunchroom." I could not persuade them to just announce "Al Muerzo to the lunchroom."

I suppose John the Baptist has been mentioned already...kind of a no-brainer.

I can think of three presidential Johns: a Kennedy and two Adamses. There may be more.
And a Major PM.

Funny that John The Baptist got mentioned pretty fast but not St. John The Apostle

Just been chatting to a friend who is off to Sarria tomorrow (I'm not jealous, honest) who remarked that a "List of famous Johns" suggests a high end sex worker's client list . . . where do they get these ideas?
I like your friend's way of thinking. My first thought was to wonder what led the OP to a fascination with toilets.

Interesting that artists and performers are so little represented.
