"My first name is Jayne, and I love it! The Y makes it just a little bit different. I've met a few Janes (without the Y) but I've never met another Jayne with the Y. I'm not sure why these names get stereotyped as a "common" or "plain" name, because as far as I know there's very few of us! Sometimes people mispronounce it as Janie or Juh-nay but it doesn't happen often enough to be annoying. I get a lot more compliments on the name and the spelling. It was nice to always be the only Jayne in my school! Most people know Jayne Mansfield, but I also try to point people towards the poet Jayne Cortez. She's a pretty famous poet and her writing is amazing. Overall, Jayne is a great name to have!" Feb. 12, 2021:
"I have always and will always cherish having this name. It is a bit frustrating when people mispronounce and/or misspell it, but i know that not many people have this name. I have never been friends with another Jayne, and I really want to!" Sep. 17, 2019:
"I like the way my name is spelled. It started as Jaynie, but mom changed it as she was filling out the papers for my ss#. It's still pronounced the same Jay-ne.
Mom decided that Jaynie was too long.
Most people say it wrong, which is kind of irritating... Oh well!" Jun. 14, 2015:
"Jayne was my Mother's maiden name. Her first name was Gervaise. She had no brothers and she wanted her maiden name to carry forward, so she named me Jayne." Aug. 31, 2011:
"I love it! It's a much prettier version. Its always pronounced correctly and people usually remember the spelling after being told once. I very rarely meet other Jaynes and I'm the only one I know spelt like this." Feb. 14, 2009:

"My middle name is Jayne and I've always been very happy with it, especially since I've just found out that it's of Hebrew origin." Jan. 31, 2021:
"My first name's Skyla and my middle name is Jayne :)
I love it. I think it's very pretty." Nov. 29, 2008:
"Most popular when Jayne Mansfield was, like Marilyn Monroe, the pin-up of the Fifties, but fell out of the U.S. girls' top 1,000 after Ms Mansfield's untimely death in a car crash in 1967 when she was only 34 years of age. Her real name was Vera Jayne Palmer (Vera was her mother's name) and her own daughter from the first of her three marriages is Jayne Marie Mansfield, born in 1950." May. 29, 2008:
"My name is Jayne and I say "it's Jayne with a Y" and i do question everything so it suits me............" Apr. 24, 2008:
"This is my name, and yes it's gets pronounced wrong all the time but it is worth it. I love my name. Being known by my first name is great. Growing up there were always more that one Amanda or Jessica who ended being known as Amanda D. and Amanda S. It was always just "Jayne". My biggest defense to it being said wrong was, "How do you say Wayne?" Would it be Way-ne or just Wayne. That usually got the point across." Oct. 30, 2007:
"iTS MY MOM'S NAME AND i CALL HER THAT WHEN i WANT TO GET HET ATTENTiON BUT i
