I know a Janiyah as well. She is beautiful and so smart. The name fits her perfectly!

tiannarose Says:


I know a Janiyah, she's around 8. Sweet, very curious, ladylike...loves painting her nails and discussing music videos. Not sure if she spells it this way or another. I would prefer Gianna to Janiyah and those just made me think of Giselle which I like more than both put together but I certainly wouldn't describe any of the three as disgusting.

simsfourest Says:


That's really harsh. Calm down.

Candler Says:


It is disgusting that you compared the beautiful Gianna to this abomination. Nameberry, you should be ashamed of yourself.
