I've seen the meaning "God is gracious" to this name before.

There´s a short version of this name: Vanina. It´s used in Italy and places with a strong Italian heritage, like Argentina. And actually the original name, has also another meaning: "the one full of the grace of God".

I love this, but only if it's spelled Giavanna. In my opinion, the A makes it look softer.

It's the middle name of the Mexican actress Anahi. Her full name is Anahi Giovanna Puente Portillo.

After hearing Giovanna mentioned by people lately the name is actually growing on me. I think this is one name best suited for someone of Italian heritage.

I came across the name Giovanna at the age of thirteen as I was reading a magazine article. I fell in love with the beautiful spelling, and as I said the name out loud a few times I loved the way it sounded, at this young age I knew back then this name would be very special to me. I always wanted to meet someone with this fantastic name and I did. Eighteen years later I gave birth to my daughter, who is every inch the beautiful Giovanna.

I love this name, especially pronounced Jah-Vonna (Not Jee-ah-vonna).
-- jasmineenimsaj  2/14/2008
This is my name (pronounced correctly as jo-VAHN-ah) and I like it now more than I used to. People have a lot of trouble saying it, but I have come to appreciate how special my name is. If it is said right, "Giovanna" is very lovely. My nickname is usually Gio, but I want to start using Gianna.

In response to the user who commented that 'Giavanna' is a softer spelling:

I disagree that the spelling 'Giavanna' is softer. It just looks like a strong, beautiful name with a rich history incorrectly spelt.

Simply beautiful! It's a little bit out of place on someone who isn't of Italian descent though. Not to sound racist.
-- Chrila96  11/14/2010
I agree. Names of certain ethnicities simply do not look nice on someone whom is not of that origin. Russian, German, Greek, and Italian to name a few. A Giovanna Worthington, Giovanna Farrel, does not sound very pretty. Giovanna Ricciardi, please; classically gorgeous.
I personally believe people should embrace their own ethnicity, not adopt another.

Having said that; I believe Giovanna has an elegant strength, charm, and allure that many names would never be in possession of.

I like it pronounced 'GEE OH VAHN NAH'. I know that isn't the correct way to pronounce it but it sounds really pretty like this.
-- starz26  2/15/2011
I love this name. But I like it spelled Giavonna. I do not like Giovanna, or Giavanna. When people pronounce it they either say GIO-VANNA or GIA-VANNA. I like GIA-VONNA. I love Italian names.

I don´t understand why Americans always want to ruin classic foreign names! It´s GIOVANNA, the italian version for Joan! It´s a beautiful name the way it is, without the crazy spellings!

Giovanna Plowman, is an American teenager whose infamous for licking her used tampon. I don't know about you but you should not name your daughter this because people are going to remember.
-- 555jazzy  1/22/2013
I love this name, it isn't my name, but I just love it. I had a very good friend with this name. It sounds very nice, elegant, sophisticated, and it is my favorite name. If I ever have a daughter I would name her Giovanna.

Giovanna Marie LaValle is the name of Snooki's daughter.
-- Icycoldhot  9/26/2014
I love this and it's my name, and as an Italian descendant it sounds lovely with my last name.
-- Giovannagiroto  8/22/2015
I assumed the pronunciation was "G-O-vah-nuh." Oops.
