The male name Jonas has a biblical origin and means "dove", probably due to his role as a prophet and messenger of God.
Jonas is a Greek name that comes from the Hebrew Jonah. Jonas was a minor prophet with a curious history. Jonas spent 3 days on a whale, because he refused to preach the word of God in Nineveh, a city where paganism reigned. After begging him for forgiveness, God made the whale spit Jonas on dry land, and Jonas, to thank him, preached his word in the city of Nineveh, swearing never to disobey him again.
