Is this a JoJo Reference?

Wittyusername103 Says:


Jolie is pretty but is basically just naming your kid "pretty" which won't do them much good if they want to go overseas. It is a cute middle name though.

I agree it's one of my favorite names.

SouthernGirl Says:


So pretty

Leah_ Says:


I really like the name Jolene. It is tied to the Dolly Parton song, but I don't think that's a bad thing.

headintheclouds Says:


Inextricably tied to the Dolly Parton song in my mind. It has a peppy ring to it, but aside from the song association, Jolene also sounds way too Southern Daisy Duke-ish for my liking. I'd prefer Jolie (yes, it also has a huge association to celebrity/pop culture, but it sounds more elegant, French-chic and fresh to my ears).

Joeleene Lochel Says:


I love my name....
I was named after the Dolly Paton song but my parents made it more unique via the spelling - Joeleene

DogNames Says:


Going to be my daughter's middle name!
