There were at least four Rabbeinu Yonahs:
# R' Yonah Gerondi (HeChassid), whom we know as [[Rabbeinu Yonah]], cousin of the Ramban, and Rebbe of the Rashba. His grandson, son of his daughter and the [[Ramban]]'s son Shlomo, was named R' Yonah after him. He had grandson who was also named [[R' Yonah]], whose daughter married the [[Rashbetz]] and was thereby the grandfather of the [[Rashbash]].<ref>Shu"t HaRashbash Siman 291</ref>
# R' Yonah שניין, a relative cousin of the latterR' Yonah Gerondi, who overlapped in his lifetime.<ref>Yad Malachi (Klalei Shear Mechabrim 14), Hagahat R' Tzvi Hirsch Berlin ad loc based on Beit Yosef Choshen Mishpat 388. See Shem HaGedolim, Gedolim, Yud 98)</ref>
# R' Yonah author of the Sefer Issur veHetter and Talmid of the Terumat HaDeshen. Printers and Poskim mistakenly labeled his Sefer as a product of R' Yonah Gerondi, but it's clearly impossible.<ref>HaRav Hershel Schachter ([ Vayakhel-Pekudei 5778], Tetzaveh 5777), Rav Meir Mazuz ([ Ohr Torah Iyyar 5777 Siman 86])</ref>
