"My name is Johanna, everyone is facinated by the pronouciation, is it Jo-Hanna Or Joanna, I don't mind how epople pronounce it, because i like all of the pronounciations of my name. There was usually one other Johanna in all my schools. But everyone knew us, because the name is unique, and for some reason Johanna's are usually very confident. i guess it may stem from always being the one and only and standing out, it teaches you to be an individual early on. I love my name, I always felt like i had a cool name even early on as a kid." Jun. 15, 2009:

"I'm Swedish, and Johanna is my first name, but I use it very seldom, only in official situations. Generally I use my second name. Johanna sounds professional, but doesn't suit me. It's hard to describe for English people how I pronounce it, but it's something like Yoo-hah-nna. People often pronounce it wrong, but not so often as in US or UK. Sometimes I'm called Yoo-ahnnah or something like this. I hate when English people called me Joanna, it's annoying. I've get this name after my father, he is Johan. In my childhood I was called Hanna, and I didn't mind it, but now I don't like when someone call me Hanna." Jun. 5, 2015:
"My name is johanna pronounced yo hanna.

Well I like my name & nick name because I don't see many people I know with it ." Jun. 25, 2012:

"My names Johanna.. I was called JoJo or baby jojo up until i was about 7, then have been Jo since. I dont like my name, it just annoys me so much because nobody ever spells it or pronounces it right, because its said like jo-hannah. Only my mum or brother call me Johanna when they're mad at me, or if theres a newteacher at school and they're doing a register.. Though i was named after a bob dylan song, so maybe if i'd liked the song i'd have liked my name.." Jun. 27, 2009:
"My name is Johanna pronounced JO-HAH-NA... Here in South Africa its not a very cool name since its no longer popular and most people named Johanna are "grannies" (I was named after my grandmother). It was also my "school name" back in the days when we were compelled to use non-African names for "official reasons" so I had to use it instead of my beloved African name Zandile (also after my grandmother pronounced Zah-ndee-leh).It means "we have in abandon" usually referring to having more than one daughter..." Dec. 30, 2008:
"My name is Johanna, pronounced Jo-HAN-ah, and I absolutely love my name. You don't hear it too often, and I'm always getting compliments on my name. The only drawback is that most people initially have a hard time pronouncing it correctly. They always want to call me Joanna or, more often, Jo-HAWN-ah. And when I introduce myself, people always think I'm saying Jodi or Jill. Despite all that, it's still worth it because I enjoy having a truly unique name." Dec. 5, 2008:
"i like the name johanna because it is my sisters name and because its unique." Feb. 17, 2008:

"People who spell my name almost always forget the H. I go by Jo, Jo-Jo, and Johanna but they think I say "Georgia", "Jodi", or "Jill" when I introduce myself. I have only met I 3 people who share my name. I like my name, and there are many variations. When I was young I was JoJo, during my teen years I was, Jo, and now I'm Johanna." May. 19, 2006:
