Personal experiences with the name Janelle: | Edit

This is my name and I've always loved it! I get many compliments and love the nickname options, I recommend it to any little girl!

My parents named my Janelle, and I have never liked it. It always seemed too formal, so as an adult I now go by Jenna. On the upside, I have not met too many people with this name, so it's fairly unique.

My name is Janelle but, it is spelled Jinel. I have never in my 43 years met another Jinel... JANelle yes but but never spelled like mine. I like the uniqueness of my name.
