  • "My name is Joanne. I've always liked the name and thought it suited me. There was no one else in my school named Joanne, so I was never in a class with someone who had the same name. I like that it's not super common, yet (at least for me) most people could spell and pronounce it correctly. I'm fond of a bit old-fashioned names, and I also love how it's not too long or too short!" Jul. 1, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Joanne is how my mom spelled my name. As a rebellious teen I put a Capital A in. I like my many nick names. My dad and brothers call me JoJo. I have very fond memories of my Dad calling me JoJo. Most family and friends call me Jo. A few boyfriends called me Josie. It's weird if you date a Joseph. My Grandfather was Joseph, his mother was Anne. Its assume thats where I got my name, but my mom says it came from a song the came out when I was born. "her name was joanne" She said her father (Philip) liked it. I like that fact it's uncommon. To me it's sweet. My kids think its a very old fashion name. They don't know any other person with the name. I think its good." May. 14, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "MY name is Joanne and its the best though i hate when people mi-say it nowadays and instead say jionee or janna for some reason and its also very hard to find someone else in school with the same name. So if i want on my exams i only put joanne." Feb. 25, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm Jo-Anne, named by my father. He had 3 choices: Wendy, Susan or Jo-Anne. Would have preferred Susan or even Joanna. Never liked Jo-Anne. Hate when people hear me say Jo-Anne and go right ahead and call me Joan!!! I'm 68." Jun. 8, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm called Joanne, but the number of people who call me Joanna or Johanna is infuriating. I don't particularly like the name and almost every one refers to me as Jo, some people call me Jojo or something using part of my surname added onto the end of Jo, I'll be honest when people call me Joanne I immediately think I'm in trouble! At school there were a few other Joannes, only one other in the same class and she liked being called Joanne so I got to be called Jo, which was a relief." Feb. 5, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mother named me...don't know why or where she came up with the name, she decided to spell it Jo Ann (two words, one name)....nobody ever gets it right, but for over 58 years I've been stuck with father once told me he would have NEVER picked the name..."

  • "My name is Joanne. In college someone told me it is a sexy name, although I don?t see it. I never disliked my name, but I dislike ?Joan? and ?Joanie? which is how many people read my name. Also I will introduce myself as ?Joanne? and a minute later the person will call me ?Joan?. Drives me nuts. Lately I get Joanna a lot too. People don?t listen. As a kid my nickname was Joey because I have a cousin also named Joanne, and at work my name sometimes evolves to ?Jo? which I don?t mind. I despise ?JoJo? which to me sounds like an organ grinder?s monkey. I was named fir my great grandfather, Jacob." Jun. 21, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is JoAnn and I don't have a middle name. When I was baptisted they listed my name as Jo first name Ann middle name. I never liked it and noone spells it correctly. But now that I am older I get called Jo Jo by my younger neices and nephews. I like that. I would like if one of my grandchildred were named after me but with a middle name."

Jan. 24, 2017: Report as inappropriate
