Linux find file names with given string

I'm on Ubuntu, and I'd like to find all files in the current directory and subdirectories whose name contains the string "John". I know that

can match the content in the files, but I have no idea how to use it with file names. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer Source

Use the find command,

find . -type f -name "*John*"
