"My name is Jeanne, pronounced Jean. Only bosses I don't like call me Jeannie!" Feb. 1, 2010:
"My name is Jeanne, and a lot of people pronounce it wrong. They say it as "Jeannie", When my name is pronounced "Jean" It's annoying at first, but you get used to misprounciations." Sep. 16, 2006:
"This name is wonderful with a French pronounciation - "G-arne"" Jan. 21, 2006:
"I love the name if it is pronounced "Jeannie". I have a friend with this name, and most people are not sure if it should be pronounced as "Jeannie" or "Jean" or "jeanay". I think jeanne is classy and feminine, and has a bit of mystery in it." Sep. 2, 2005:

"I like my name. I pronounce it Jean. It's crisp sounding and easy to spell and it has a great meaning." Sep. 21, 2018:
"My first name is Jeanne, pronounced Jean, but I've always been called Jeannie as a nickname. Lately, most younger people calling my name out at the doctor's office, etc., always mispronounce it as Jeanine or Je-Ann. Jeannie Beanie, Jeannie Weenie and Jeannie with the light brown hair are all very familiar comments. My daughter has a friend who spells her name the same as me, but pronounces it as Johnny."

"Mom named me Jeanne, pronounced Jean. Growing up, I was called Jeannie a lot and still preferred it.
So many people when writing my name ask "Is that with a G or a J?" . I reply, a J!!, G Is for boys! (Gene from Eugene)
Surprised how many people do not know, and ask. Most of them much younger. I am 63.
Some would sing 🎶 I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair 🎶 :)
For the first time ever, last year, someone said "That's an old oerson's name." Ouch!" Mar. 9, 2017:
"My name is Jeanne. I was named after my mother who had the same name. She always went by Jean and I've always pronounced my name as Jeannie which kept it easier at home. I have a niece with Jeanne as a middle name.
I've always liked my name, maybe because of my mom but as a teenager I missed the popular names of the 60s" Feb. 15, 2017:
"My name is Jeanne I just go by how u would say Jean, some people do call me Jeannie or include my middle name, Jeanne Marie.It always gets mis pronounced tho, i hated it growing up and never felt like it matched me. I did get all the jokes with "Genie in a bottle" and "Jeannie Weenie". I'm 24 now & just recently started to come to grip with it & enjoy the beauty of it. I love the meaning: God is Gracious & how its not that common of a name, especially for my age group. ;)" Apr. 20, 2010:
"My mother gave me this as a middle name with a twist and I have always loved it. And of course, no one can pronounce it correctly. Mine is spelled Jeanne' (that is with an accent mark on the last e). Even English teachers do not know what the accent mark is and always mispronounce it as Jean. I pronounce it as "Ja nay" as you would say Rene'." Nov. 10, 2009:
"My experience with my name is that I always expect people to have problems with it. It is very seldom that someone gets it correct. My parents intended it to be pronounced like "Jeannie". Alot of people think to say Je-Anne, or Jeanine. My sons & their friends called me "Jeanne in a bottle". I know a few other Jeanne's in my community and they are close to my age (62). The name is not a popular one for a new baby in this area...I know of NO little Jeanne's! I like the spelling as an adult but I didn't as a child." Sep. 30, 2009:
"I never meet anyone named Jeanne who is my age (27) - it's fun and classy.
My parents pronounce it like Jean, but a lot of people say Jeannie.
There are always the Jeannie-in-a-bottle jokes, but when I was little being called Jeannie Weenie made me cry. And a lot of people (especially telemarketers) can't read it and say Jeanine, Je-Anne or (my fav) Je-nay-nay." Jun. 13, 2009:
"I have battled with "JeannIE" vs. Jean all my life. Although my name is Jeanne, my mother's grandfather was French so I tried Zhan but I couldn't get anybody to call me that." Apr. 24, 2009:
"My name is Jeanne and people often call me "Jeannie". When I was younger it was annoying but now thats what everyone calls me so I really don't care. I am often called "Jeanay" and "Jenaynay" This name is very classic" Mar. 23, 2009:
"My name is Jeanne because my mom loved the show I Dream of Jeannie but she misspelled it. I go by the "Jeanne" only because that's how I felt like it was meant to be. But I think it can easily be mistaken for "Jean" or "Je-anne". No one ever gets it right the first time around or spells it correctly. It's kind of unique though. I still like it regardless" Aug. 13, 2006:
"My friend's name is Jeanne too. We call her Genie in a Bottle hehe" Mar. 1, 2006:
"I have a friend named Jeanne, but her name is pronounced as if it is spelled Zhan....the French version." Jan. 27, 2006:
