From www.vitalog.net: Jordan : English, patronymic derived from the Christian name Jordan ‘flowing down’, which became a popular given name because so many pilgrims returned to England with holy water from the river Jordan which was used to baptize infants who then received the name; a regular part of the pilgrim’s costume was the leathern bottle carried for this purpose.
