"I don't know anybody else named Janna. Often it's mispronounced 'Jenna' or misspelled 'Jana'. Sometimes I turn my head if someone is calling for 'Shannon' or 'Jenna'. When I was young I hated that everyone spelled it wrong so wanted to go by Jan instead. I love the name now and am so pleased that it's from the Bible." Jul. 1, 2010:

"The name Janna is funny and strange. It is short and the name Jenna, Jennifer, or even Jane is definitely better. Everyone that I have met with the name has been really mean and has bullied me. I guess I associate the name with cruelty. I personally do not like it and would not name a child this." Mar. 5, 2014:

I have only met a few Janna's, but I think it's a great name! :) My mother's name is Janny, and Mine is Janna, it's a bit confusing.... maybe I'll add to the confusion and name my daughter janae or something! :) heh" Apr. 2, 2009:
