"My name is Shawna Lynn and I'm grateful that's what my mother named me. She said she had the name picked out since she was a child. I just recently read that the meaning of Shawna is "God is gracious" or "God is merciful". I can relate to that a bit. :)" Jun. 10, 2021:

"I love the name Shawna. It has a positive ring to it. It?s an upbeat name. No way boring and old fashioned. Hate names that have a flat boring sound like Mary, Joan, midge, carol. Any many more" Oct. 21, 2018:
"You shouldn't be ashamed of your name. Especially because it may remind you of a boys name. That is so rude to the Shawn's of the world. Those Shawna's could say the same thing about us Shawna's. The only ones who seem to habe an issue with the name is teens." Sep. 12, 2016:

"Shawna is my name and of course its the best... But over the years I've come to realize that even though its written phonetically people clearly cant read bc they always pronounce it horrendously lol" Mar. 22, 2012:
"I love it. As said somewhere else, I'm really stubborn on the spelling. With a U is like, sha-oo-nah IMO. W is the way to go. It's unique and lots of people compliment me on my fab name." Feb. 21, 2009:

"my papa named me Shawna after my dad ?Shawn? and i don?t eeally like it because my dad left us and has really nothing to do with us anymore and my name being close to his really upsets me (also my snaps @bae_dayz hmu)" Feb. 28, 2018:
"My sister's name is Shawna and people spell it wrong everywhere we go. Some people spell it Shauna and Shawn. It is a very unique name and more and more parents are naming their kids Shawna every day." Mar. 15, 2017:
"Shawna is also my name. My dad named me after him, Shawn. I use to not like the name, but I'm growing on it. I think it suits me wether I like it or not. I've met two others, one with the same spelling and other spelt Shaunagh. It is quite unique, but some how it is becoming more popular with the spelling Shauna. I have found a few things with that spelling and my parents also found a tiny picture frame when I was younger with my own spelling." May. 1, 2016:
"My name is Shawna, and it's been fun being teased by my family and called, "Shiniqua, Shanayay, or Shawanda" and yes I'm white but those names are so much more fun. Anyway, I like to dance, write, craft, run, and tell it like it is. That's something I've noticed in the other Shawna's I've met (even though they spelled it different) We're blunt and down to earth." Apr. 27, 2016:
"My name is shawna kay but my friends. Call me shawna i just love the name" Feb. 5, 2011:
"My daughter's name is Shawna Noelle. She was born in the eighties when everyone was naming their baby girls, Brittany, Samantha, Lauren, etc. Shawna is still a unique name in our area of New York, and my daughter is constantly complimented on her name. I see a lot of people with the spelling, Shauna, but I prefer the "w" because it is straight forward, in my opinion. By the way, my sister and my mom begged me not to name my daughter this name, but I totally ignored them." Dec. 3, 2010:
"My mother came up with it in 1959 by rhyming "Dawn" with a number of names. My Great-Grandfather told her I would legally change it as soon as I turned 18. Ha ha!!! At 51, I have met many Shawna's, but none older than myself. Proud to be the oldest Shawna..........so far." Nov. 12, 2010:

"my name is La'Shawna but i perfer to leave the "La" off and to be just called Shawna which almost everyone calls me anyway..i have my parents to blame for the "La" part!" Nov. 13, 2008:
"my name is Shawna...has been for 26 years. I do really like my name, it is unique enough that not everyone has it (I was the only one at school with it) but it doesn't sound "made up" either. One thing I've noticed though. Most Shawna's, now matter how they spell it, really only like THEIR way of spelling it...we seem to be stubborn." Dec. 28, 2007:
"My name is Shawna Levonne, totally not trashy " first comment" .......HMPH!! I think both my names are easy to say and not too common or too weird. I couldnt' imagine having any other name!!" Apr. 2, 2007:
"this name is the best cause i have the name shawna" Nov. 18, 2006:
"Everyone always spells it wrong as well as pronounces it like "Sha-wanna" " Sha-way-na" I do not meet too many people with this name which is why I love it!! Yay for an original name." Mar. 25, 2006:
"it's my name, and to be honest i've always disliked it. i've hardly met anyone else with it, but as i get older - i like that fact more and more. it's always spelt wrong, and as a kid all i ever wanted was to be able to buy one of those personalized keychains or pens or combs with my name on it. in 25 years i have only found 1 thing - balloons - with Shawna spelt correctly. i promptly bought 3 packages."
