Comments and insights on the name Jeanne: | Edit

Jeanne is akin to Joan, Joanne, Jean, Johnna, Johanna, Giovanna, Juana, Juanita, and many more derivatives of the feminine version of JOHN.

My 13-year-old aunt got to name me (my birth made her an aunt), and she was taking French in 8th grade, so she chose Jeanne (French version of Jean) for my middle name. First name, Barbara, was very popular at the time. When I was in 3rd grade, there were 4 Barbara's in the class of 31, and 3 of of were Barbara Jean(ne).

Very few parents are naming girls Barbara today, and even fewer are choosing Jeanne.

I was the first girl after 3 boys, so my mother named me Jeanne for my father, John.
