The "Jojo" in the title refers to each generation's protagonist having their name abbreviated to form Jo-Jo: Jonathan Joestar, Joseph Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, Josuke Higashikata, Shizuka Joestar, and Giorno Giovanna.
("Higashikata" and "Shizuka" can be rewritten as "Jo" in Japanese script, while Giorno's name homages his Italian background and his fusion of both Joestar and Brando blood). See more
