My daughter is named Johannah! To me, it sounds like a wholesome name that ages well. It's uncommon, but beautiful. Everyone knows the name and loves it. Sometimes we call her Hannie, but mostly everyone just calls her Johannah. We pronounce the middle syllable like "han in hand" and sometimes, even after just being introduced, people hear "hahn". Without the extra "h" on the end is the more common spelling, but we love her name spelled with it. To us, it looks more balanced.
