Gender: F Meaning of Dianne: "divine" Origin of Dianne: Spelling variation of Diane

Dianne, one of the many offshoots and variations of the classic Diana, had its moment in the sun in the 1940s--it was a Top 100 name from 1943 to 1952. It now would make a very unlikely choice.

This spelling is currently associated with California Senator Dianne Feinstein.
