Comments and insights on the name Jan: | Edit

My sister's full nane was Jann. She was always corrected on the spelling and asked what it was short for. My mom spelled it with two "n's" so it matched our last name which also had two consonants.

Jan is usually a nickname for Janet or Janice.

My mum's full name is Jan. Not a nickname.
