"Am a 34 year old Janette living in the UK it's a very rare spelling of the name I myself was named after the midwife (Janette) who delivered me as my parents thought I was a boy, I love my name as I am normally the only one who is a Janette but I do have a friend in oz called Janette" Apr. 25, 2021:
"This is my name! I was born in the 1990's. It is weird to see how few young people have have my name. I was named after my grandmother Jane. My parents wanted me to be named after her but not be called little Jane because there are already repeated names in the family. And little Jane sounds weird. So they came up with Janette. not Janelle or Jeanette or Jeannette, Janet" Apr. 3, 2008:
"Most people wanted to spell my name Jeanette but my mother wanted me to be a Jan rather than a Jean if it was ever made short which I never did. People always asked how I said it. Really didn't care how they pronouced it just that they spelled it right. I only ran into to other Janette's in my entire schooling including college. So, you won't have to worry about you child running around with her last intial on her name tag." Jan. 31, 2006:

"I am a "Janette" born in late 60s at the peak of popularity for this name. Yes everyone spells and pronounces it wrong! (I have zero expectations at my age.) Only once have I come upon another exact "Janette"-- so fun considering how rare. We have a neat connection because of it. My best friend growing up was "Jeannette" so I was "Janette 2" at her house. If YOU are a "Janette" -- Hi to you and welcome to the small "Janette" sisterhood!! :-)" Dec. 10, 2020:
