Hi, I have a question about the French pronunciation of Jeanne.
According to this site it's pronounced "zhan," but I wonder how they differentiate between Jeanne and the masculine Jean? "zhan" just seems a bit masculine for a female name. Does anyone know of an alternate French pronunciation or a way to phonetically differentiate between Jeanne and Jean? Thanks!
