"I love that Janae is not commonly used as a name, even though people get it wrong a lot. It reminds me of a light, crisp, cloud sparkling in the daylight. I would never get rid of my name." Nov. 23, 2018:
"Hey my name is Janae Miller and I tv is spelled the way I typed it. I was born in 1999 and I really like my namee. I get many commennts from people telling me how pretty my name is! The bad thing is that many people say it wrong and that makes me really mad!!! But on the good side, I love my name and I would never change it for anyone. My name is from my great family and it is a part of them. This ne helps me remember where im from and that my family is still apart of me and I will never forget them. :) #ilovemyname" Nov. 12, 2013:
"My daughters middle name is Janae but we pronounce is like it has a zsa for the Ja" Aug. 19, 2013:
"My name is Janae and my Mom thought she made up my name by taking hers (Janene) and combining with her sister's (Renee). I thought I was unique but have met a lot of others with different spellings. Of course its pronounced wrong but I really hate it when its written as ?Janea?, isn't that Juh-nay-uh?" Nov. 2, 2012:
"Most people spell and say my name wrong. my parents thought of my name from my cousin's middle name, Denae, and swapped out the "D" for a "J" thus, creating Jenae. I personally think of the name as unique even though I usually go by Jae, or what my sister calls me "Nae."" Jun. 21, 2012:
"I'm naming my baby girl this name but I don't know if I should spell it Janae or Janay" Feb. 18, 2012:
"my name is janae,,spelled the exact way i wrote it . it is most times spelled wrong then it is pronounced . i often get spellings like ( janay, janai , jane ) and the most common janea . -__- other than that iLOVE MY NAME! and i wouldnt change it at all ( :" Jan. 6, 2011:
"My name is JENAE! Always curious of what it meant and why my mom chose it. No one has ever pronounced it wrong really.
I know few people with the same name as me, different spelling same pronounciation. Janae, Jenay and two who spell it the same as me Jenae." Aug. 28, 2010:
"my name is jenaye.i love it. i always get comments as well." Jul. 29, 2010:
"I love the name Janae! We named our daughter Janae Taylor. I've known two others with the name Janae, but they spelled it differently (Jenee' and Jennay). We came up with the name to continue a family tradition of "Jan" names. My grandmother's name was Janet. My mom's name is Janel and my name is Jana. We considered spelling it Janay, but really like the 'e' on the end instead. Many people spell her name Jenae or Janea, but no one pronounces it wrong, yet - she's only 1, so I'm sure there'll be plenty of mispronunciations in her lifetime." Jul. 29, 2010:
"my Name is Janae Also, which my grandmother named me .. i was told my name was French, but hebrew too ." Jul. 13, 2010:
"Obviously everyone who is commenting is anmed Janae. My version is spelled just as i typed, and it actually is French. Sure, they may spell it different in France. The spelling doesn't affect the origin. I am patially French, and love my name. It's so unique and fun to say. Not to mention the nick names are endless.:]" Apr. 30, 2010:
"My name is Janae and I am 49 years old. I never met or heard of anyone with my name until I was well into my forties and even then, they were all at least twenty years younger. I too thought my name was French, but when I was visiting in Paris, France, I had the opportunity to inquire about my name and was told that they could not identify my name as truly French. They said that the pronunciation was familiar but the spelling was not and to be truly French...it would be spelled Genet with a soft g and silent t. (By the way....Genet is a flower that the French use to scent perfumes.)
About ten years ago I found that Janae is in fact Hebrew and means "God answers" or "God replies" which makes more sense to me than the more common claim that it is English, Welsh or American as just another derivative of Jane or Janet. But then again.....there could be a connection since Jane means God is gracious and Janae means God replies---and it certainly is a gracious of God to reply to our prayers." Apr. 14, 2010:
"My name is Janae I absolutely love that name its probably the best name in the whole entire world! But a LOT of people say it wrong and spell it wrong.But when I say my name to other people while I introduce myself they always say its a beautiful name. I've also only met one other girl with the same pronounciation so I think Janae is pretty unique!(:" Apr. 10, 2010:
"No one can pronounce or spell my name! I spell it "Jenae" and nobody has any idea. I have to tell them that it rhymes with Renee or something. I love it though. It's a beautiful name, after my grandma who's name was Jean. I guess Jenae is a form of Jean." Feb. 17, 2010:
"My name is Janae. Janae Leigh.

"i love the name Janae!! but that's probally cause it's my name and it's really really annoying when people pronounce it wrong" Jul. 18, 2009:
"I just might be the original Janae:-) I was born in 1968. Actually, my Mom got the name from a Janae who was already in existence. Furthermore, in my little high school (~150 in my class) there was yet another Janae! I was chuckling at your experiences with the name. I also use the Renee with a 'J' line to help with pronunciation. Also, had a college roommate who was certain I was African American because of the unique name. I really like having a unique name." Apr. 27, 2009:
"My name Janae'i Skye I didn't like it up until 6th grade, but now I love it!!!" Aug. 13, 2008:

"I'm a Janae, born in 1991. I have only heard my name twice in Hutchison and Wellington Kansas, but many people spell and even say my name rong. People aften spell my name Janea and pronounce my name "Janie" or "Jenna" or even "Janna". After correcting them they aften say you have a pretty name. And they have never heard that name before. Even though I get really angrey at people who dont spell or pronounce my name right, I like haveing a unique name." Jul. 17, 2007:
"I'm a Janae, born in 1982. Back then, my parents thought they were giving me an unheard-of name, but today it is a bit more popular. I've met a handful of other Janaes in my lifetime. People mispronounce my name ALL the time! It is pronounced Ja-NAY, but people often say "Janie" or "Jayna". I get tired of people mispronouncing my name, but almost always, when I correct them, the person will say "Wow, that's such a beautiful name!" I love having a unique name! I wouldn't change my name for anything!" Jun. 6, 2007:
"My daughters name is Tatum Jenae and people are all the time telling that i picked the two most beautiful names for a little girl! I think if flows really pretty and I used the e instead of the a just to spice it up. pronounced Jen-ae." Feb. 5, 2007:
"A lot of people mispronounce the name Janae. When I went to college my roommate thought I was going to be African American because of my name and her name is Quincee so i thought she was going to be African American and we both showed up to our apt and we were both white." Apr. 25, 2006:

"I named my daughter Janae i really like it because it's not common she was the only one in her school. Her middle name is Nicole a lot of people compliment her name. Of course she doesn't like it! so she goes by Jaye! nae" Jan. 22, 2019:
"My name is Janae. When I was I. My teens, my dad told me I was named after a girl he cheated on my mom with. ?She was 17, and beautiful, I wanted you to look just like her.?
I?m still on the fence... almost wishing I didn?t know this.
Until then I was told that since we all have J names, my dad thought of my moms best friend Renee and put a J on it, but liked this spelling.
People always say it wrong... it doesn?t look so complicated to me. And then I politely correct them, and they say it?s pretty. I think that?s the common apology when you screw a name up.
People ask me if it?s French... but we all learned about Edmond Genet, the friend explorer... so people associate the pronunciation with a French name.
I like to say it fancy sometimes when I?m feeling sassy... Jza-Nae.
Today, one of patients told me my name is intriguing and captivating. Lol...
You ever know what you?re going to get wth a Janae." Jan. 20, 2019:
"My parents made up my mom?s name when driving across country. My mom was named Genevieve and kids called her Jenny, which she hated at the time as she was teased as Jenny Gasoline as a kid. So when my folks were headed for their first military base, my dad told my mom that she could pick her own nickname. My mom?s family was French and her father?s middle name was Ren?, so they decided on Jen?, not realizing the feminine form should have had another e at the end.
I had to pick a name in French class that was French and I said Jen?e. My French teacher refused to let me use it saying it was not a French name. In the last 20 years I have finally seen and heard the name Jen?. The first time I heard someone pronounce the name correctly was in a doctor?s office. I got up to see how it was spelled. In this case it was Jenae and I saw how it was pronounced correctly. Also I have seen it spelled Janai." Jul. 14, 2018:
"I too am Jayn? (similar to Jayne' Andre'a who posted above and pronounced Janae). I love my name, but it is true no one can pronounce it if read or spell it if not. I was born in 1969." Jul. 11, 2015:
"My name is also Janae. Most people do not pornoce my name wrong. But my last name is pretty crazy." Mar. 2, 2015:
"My name is Jayne' Andre'a (pronounced Janae). I love my name but no one gets it right. I always get called jane no matter how many times I correct people. My mom told me it is French. It looks like I'm the only one with this spelling but regardless of the spelling, I'm happy to have a unique name." Jul. 13, 2014:
"Mine is Jenae and I was born in 69. My mom said she got it from a miss America pageant(miss France) the year I was born, but all I could find that was close was miss France 1976, Jeanne Beck. It's very possible that she named me from memory and didn't get the spelling exact, after all, most people don't spell it right when it's spelled out letter by letter.. ;) I've never actually known another Jenae, only people who say they know another...
It would be so wired to say my name when referring to someone else." Jun. 19, 2014:
