  • "Hey everyone! I'm 14 years old and I am named Janessa. So far, the only Janessa I've ever encountered is a senior high school and we're good friends. Back then, I wanted another name or the same name spelled differently. But now, I am absolutely, irrevocably pleased that my parents named me Janessa. Actually, my whole name is Janessa Anne Louise, which I think is the awesome-st name ever. I am very happy with my name. It's unique, it's fun, it's pretty and quite rare. Some people mispronounce and mispell my name too though. It's pronounced as Ja-ne-sah, and spelled as Janessa, but a few people pronounce it as Gee-ne-sa, and spell it as Jannessa, Janesa, Jannessa, Genessa, Genesa or Jenessa. I think that's a bit offending, and I am quietly hurt when they do that, but what can I do, right? But I really love my name as it ILYSM! haha!" Apr. 3, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a 17 year old Janessa and I've always loved my name. Like the other person above, whenever I tell people my name they always remark that it's so pretty. I don't remember it ever being mispronounced, though it has been mispelt a few times as either Jenessa or with two n's.
