    Ways to honour Jane

    Hi Berries,
    I've been having fun recently coming up with girls' combos which all honour a family member in the middle. I've used variations of all the names, which is what I did with my dd's name- her middle name is Elise to honour my grandmother Elizabeth. But I've been struggling to find a way of using my mother's name which is Jane- any ideas? What is your favourite Jane variant? Thanks!

    Gia, Gianna, Giana, Giovanna, Janet, Janae, Jana, Janice, Jenica, Joanna, Johanna(h), Ohanna, Sian, Sinead, Siobhan? For a boy, you could use any variant of John, which is the same meaning as Jane.

    What first name are you thinking so far? I think my favorites are Johanna first (or Johannah), and then maybe Joanna, Giana, or Gia. I think Celeste Maybelle is so darling with Juniper Elise off of your list.

    PS What will Arlo's middle name be? I just adore Juniper Elise! Congrats and best of luck with the new baby!

    I actually think Jane itself is my favorite, but there are so many variants I can't be sure. I found one just the other day; Zana, which I really like {speaking of which, Zane could be used on the boy's side}. There are also Jean, Joan, and Jeanette.
