- Comments and insights on the name Jolene: | Edit
Jolene is a lovely name, but prospective parents should be aware it is also a brand of cream bleach for facial hair.
The facial hair bleach is called Jolen. Not Jolene
Jolene is a feminine given name. It is derived the Middle English name for Joseph. As a descendant from Joseph, it keeps its original Hebrew language meaning of "He God will increase".God shall add and she who shall increase
Sometimes referred to as Jolie, meaning "beautiful" in French.
I really like the name Jolene. It's a great name for a girl whose father is named Joseph. The only bad thing about it is people would think of the song by Dolly Parton.
- Personal experiences with the name Jolene: | Edit
In my life time as a Jolene I have come across people that do not have a good command of the English language. I have been called Jolee Joline Joleen Josie Jo-len and the list goes on. I am grateful to be a Jolene I have only ever seen 3 other people named that, one I went to school with a few grades ahead of me, one in England and one on a game show back in the 90's. It's a great name if you are looking for something different. Heck it's not even on the top 1000 list :)
I love my name Jolene but people have trouble pronouncing it especially in Australia, they call me Joel-ene and I really don't like it.
