"My name is pronounced Janay but it is spelled Jenee with the accent mark on the last e. Not many people have been able to pronounce it correctly, but every so often I am surprised when someone does. I used to hate the spelling of my name and asked my mom why didn't she spell it another "easier" way. I prefer the spelling now because if someone pronounces it wrong then I probably don't need to be talking to them anyway. i.e. Telemarketers..." Jun. 21, 2013:
