- Comments and insights on the name Janna: | Edit
My name is Janna. I was born in 1957 so back then it was a weird name. People seem to never remember it. Of course I was Janna banana and my brother called me Janna banana the big fat wanna. My boss called me Johnna for years. Nowadays everyone calls me Jenna. I have a sister named Jenna, go figure, and I am always correcting people. I just found out that Janna means Paradise and Gods gift to men in Islamic. Wish I had known that all my life so I could tell people it meant something since people have always asked me where that name came from. Especially in 1957 when not to many girls had different names. I had always wished my name was Kathy or Susie or something normal. Now I like my name.

Janna Donnette here (1989) lol. I've had the same life as everyone else here lmfaoooo Hated my name as a teen not because it wasn't nice but because 1. No one could pronounce it, ppl who got it first try astounded me. 2. I despise Bananas 3. I was willing to die for a real nick name not 'J' But I took wat I cud get lol
I found out about the Arabic translation two yrs ago when I was working a Burlington and had my name tag on and a beautiful Arabic woman comes up to me and she's so excited she yells DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR NAME MEANS. I'm like I thought I did (God is Gracious) but now I'm not so sure lol then she tells me Paradise (meaning Heaven). With that being said my mom made up my name same as someone else here lol her now EX best friends name was Janet and my dad and his friends are Jamaican. So they kept mixing up Janet and Donna (my moms name) Janet Donna Janna Janet Donna lol so she called me Janna Donnette to spite them haha my cousins all call me Janna Banana they have a song ... "My name is Janna it rhymes with Banana"

My name is Janna Andrea.My teacher in grade 6 always accidentaly pronounce my name as Diana or other people that i met at first time,yes all my teachers always pronounce it as Diana. It hurt's sometimes when they recognized you at a different name,i dunno but i feel kind'a sad,i guess i was just dramatic.At first i wish my name is only Andrea so when i got interest of finding what's the meaning of my name i search it
I'm seriously shock of the meaning cause it means Heaven well i really expect that the meaning of my name will be love or heart
Sometimes someone saying i'm cute and also my name so that's why i got the interest of finding the meaning of my name
But i love my name,tough i would like if my name is something unique that have the meaning of love or heartbeat but that's fine
And i am worried because i have a classmate and her name is Diana and i'm worried because.like---ahm what if our teacher accidentaly put my grade to her? Ugh it's fine if she's smart but she's not and she have a lot of absence hihihi
I know i'm worried in just a simple problem
As you can see i like hearts ^•^
