Janice Dickinson was one of the first supermodels. Dorian Leigh was the first one.

Janice Joplin (1943-1970) was a famous bearer of this name and was also a famous rock legend. She may have ended her life on drugs but had the heart, spirit and voice of an angel. A true hero.

Actually, she spelled it Janis.

Nah man, can't stand this name, it reminds me of that chick from Friends.

This form of Jane seems to have been invented by the American novelist Paul Leicester Ford for the title character of his book _Janice Meredith_, first published in 1899. I suspect that he blended the names Janet and Alice to create it. The story is set in New Jersey during the time of the American Revolution, but I've never found a real example born before Ford's book was published. [noted -ed]

An absolute boring name! BLAH.

This is my name and while I don't love it, I don't hate it either. Any other name on this site, no matter how hideous I consider it, has at least one positive comment posted--except mine! I don't believe one should dislike a name just because the writers of a popular television show elected to use it for an unsympathetic character. Nor do I feel the name Janice is boring--not nearly so much so as Anne, Sue, or Lynn! My name is out of style now, but it just may come back in fifty years or so.

I don't really like most names ending in 's' or the 's' sound, and this one is no exception.

This name is quite old fashioned, but I like the fact that it has the word nice in it.

Janice Rand was the name of Captain Kirk's personal yeoman during the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series. She was played by Grace Lee Whitney.

I thought it was pretty at first, because I thought it was pronounced juh-NEESE... kind of like Denise.

Janice is a beautiful name in my opinion, especially since this is the name of my favorite aunt who has practically raised me. She is my confidante and we are very close, so naturally, Janice is a name that really means a lot to me.

This name is so boring. It even reminds me of floor mops. Yuck.

The name Janice was given to 189 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

I check out a lot of middle aged customers with this name. May have been popular in the 60s &/or 70s.

I think this name is cute and beautiful. Xxoxo :)

Being another form of Jane, it seems nice to have if you're pretty and girly, but ugly to have the opposite way.
-- Hushpuppy  7/18/2015
Good enough, although a bit dated. Janice brings to mind a type of woman who is very stable and stable minded and has a good head on her shoulders. Oddly, I can easily picture a "Janice" who likes to help and provide for others.
