In Poland we don't use this feminine form of masculine name "Jan". It sounds a bit artificial for the Poles. [noted -ed]

In the US this name is very rare. It's really a pleasant feeling to know that my name is shared by others in other countries as well.

It's a very common Czech name. Pronounced YAH-nah. Nothing special, boring. But it usually fits to every surname. I'm glad that my cousin was named earlier than me so I got another name. :)

Jana is the most ordinary and most boring Czech name ever! Totally run-of-the-mill.
I have never understood why, for God's sake, so many parents give their baby-girls this name.
Czech pronunciation is YAH-NAH.

My name is Jana pronounced Jan-uh. I've only met a couple of people with my name. Growing up I hated it but I grew to love it.

It's a name of my Czech friend. I like it and she does too. It's short and nice sounding, and doesn't need any nicknames.

It is an awesome name that isn't common in the United States. I hated it while growing up, but like it now. I was thinking Janica or Janafer is cool.

I always heard this as 'Jane-a', but now I know of someone who pronounces it 'Jan-a' (Rhyming with 'Dan'). It looks to me like 'HA-na' or 'YA-na'.
