I like this name. Not sure that I would use it, but I think it is a very nice name... far better than Janelle.

Janeá Davers Says:


Ive never liked my name... mainly because 99.6% of the time no one knows how to pronounce it or remember it... so I always have to refer to 'Forest Gump' and then they catch on. Maybeven if it was spelled Janay or Janae... I think the accent mark confuses them.. but Janea' it will forever be... lol or Jennifer, James, Jane-E-ah, or jeniqua... whatever they decide to call me. (And yes I have been called all of these).

Horrid distortion of Jane. Every Janae/Janai/Janée I've met was nice and I have no negative associations. It just sounds like a Francophile wanted to jazz up the name...not my cup of tea. I prefer Jane.

Olivia Janae Says:


Honestly I really hate it when people say Janae is a horrible name and that it's ridiculous because its a really pretty name and maybe I'm just being biased because its my middle name but personally I love it. Like its not common where I live either because I'm the only person I kn with this name. Anyway I would recommend that you name your child Janae because it really is a pretty name.

My friend's name is Janae and my cousin's name is Janée. I go to a bank where the teller is named Jenai. This name is so common around me. I heard it on tv once or twice too.
