  • Mood:

the terminology confuses me

For those that are not easily identified, either through the lack of ID or memory, there is the labelling of such as John Doe....sometimes Jane Doe as the case may involve a female.

What is the origin of this term?

Why John?

Is anyone aware of when this was first used or how the first and last were decided upon?
