From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      whom Jehovah graciously bestows. (1.) One of the Gadite heroes
      who joined David in the desert of Judah (1 Chr. 12:12).
         (2.) The oldest of King Josiah's sons (1 Chr. 3:15).
         (3.) Son of Careah, one of the Jewish chiefs who rallied round
      Gedaliah, whom Nebuchadnezzar had made governor in Jerusalem (2
      Kings 25:23; Jer. 40:8). He warned Gedaliah of the plans of
      Ishmael against him, a warning which was unheeded (Jer. 40:13,
      16). He afterwards pursued the murderer of the governor, and
      rescued the captives (41:8, 13, 15, 16). He and his associates
      subsequently fled to Tahpanhes in Egypt (43:2, 4, 5), taking
      Jeremiah with them. "The flight of Gedaliah's community to Egypt
      extinguished the last remaining spark of life in the Jewish
      state. The work of the ten centuries since Joshua crossed the
      Jordan had been undone."

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
   Johanan, who is liberal or merciful
