"I?m a Dianne with two n?s. I always hate it when I get the one ??n? or Diana. Dianne and Diane are not short or informal for Diana. Having said that I think it?s a harsh sounding name. I would have just preferred Anne. My middle name wasn?t much better so I stuck with Dianne." Mar. 30, 2019:
"I am a Dianne and LOVE that it's spelled with 2 n's - Ann or Anne is spelled with 2 n's - it's never An or Ane so it makes sense. My mom thought it looked prettier and I agree. I've said "Dianne with 2 n's" my whole life and when I meet another with this spelling she says the same thing! I was born in 1959 and there weren't that many in school with my name and definitely not with 2 n's. Thanks for making my name special, Mom!" Oct. 24, 2012:
"It makes much more sense for the English pronunciation to spell it with two "n's."" Nov. 27, 2011:
"My mom's name is Dianne, and I love it the extra N. However it does get mispelled a lot." May. 29, 2010:

"I LOVE Dianne with 2 "n"s. I always point out when my name is spelled incorrectly. To me, it makes sense.Do you spell Ane this way? NO so why Diane?" Nov. 9, 2018:
"My name is spelled with one "N" and I have always been happy about that, but in recent years more and more people are adding the second "n" to it. I find that almost as annoying as when I was a child and was called Diana all the time. Looks like most people prefer what name they were given at birth, the one they are used to writing. I love the name because it hasn't been over used (except maybe in 1947 when it was most popular)." Apr. 19, 2018:
"I have 2 Ns. I find that if people give me both Ns, they try to take away the E at the end. I had a control freak boss once who spelled it with 1 N as a power trip thing." Feb. 20, 2018:
"I hated my name....always wanted to be a Chris....now I love it and the spelling Dianne" Nov. 20, 2017:
"I am Dianne with two N's. My Dad made a special trip down to city hall to make the change on my birth certificate; so the day he saw me trying to shorten it to one N; I was reminded that I was special because my name had two N's and I had to write it that way. Now that I am older I always tell people that I have two N's in my name because I am Naughty and Nice...it helps them to spell it right...the next time." May. 20, 2008:
"I was born in a Catholic hospital and it wasn't until several days after my birth that my parents discovered that the nuns at the hospital had spelled my name with two 'n's'. Working in design and architecture, I've had many co-workers try convince me to spell my name many different ways like Diann or Dyan to update the name or make it more 'artesy', but I'm fine with how it's spelled and not bothered if it's spelled with only one 'N'."

"My name is also Dianne with 2 N's.
I also changed it in schoolbut in the first grade.
I wanted to sit with my best friend.
Unfortunatly she was split into a group of people with names that had 5 letters or less.
She suggested I drop on N.
I did and spelled it that way until my 30ties when I decided I wanted my written name to match the proper name on my I.D.
Most people do think it is odd that I have 2 N's in my name." Nov. 24, 2007:
"My name is Dianne but I've spelled it with only one N since high school, originally because I liked the way it looked better, but also because most people spell it with one N. My closest family members and friends insist on spelling it with 2 N's though and I dont mind. I like my name, although as a teenager I thought it was kind of old fashioned. I've known maybe 8-10 other Diannes (this spelling) personally in my life so far, so I guess its not a very popular name. I did meet one younger lady a few years ago with the name Di-Anne, which is kind of cool and different. No one has ever pronounced my name wrong but most people assume it has only one N."
