This is what William Clark called Sacajawea. (from William and Clarks famous journey across the continent) Clark gave it to her so he could pronounce her name better and so she could have a "white" name.

This is my cousin's actual first name. I shudder at the horrible mauling of the name Jane every time I hear it. It's so hill-billy-esque.

Janie was the main character in the book The Face on the Milk Carton. I hate that book with a passion, so now I hate this name.

My middle name is Janie. I've found it to be not that common. I've only ever known one more Janie and her name was a nickname for her middle name Jane.

My name is Jane, but I go by Janie so I'm distinguished from my grandmother. I love my name, but my only issue is other people's confusion with the more popular 'Jamie.' Lots of people tell me it's a cute name, a less serious version of Jane. I think it's a good best friend name; Harriet the Spy's best friend is Janie, and Megan, on Drake & Josh, has a best friend named Janie.

The name Janie was given to 162 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I think it makes a nice nickname for Jane, which is a little more mature and not as sweet as Janie. It's also very uncommon, which is a plus!
