User comments for Janice

Personal Impression

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]
