I love the name Janine, it's very pretty, and very underused.

"Janine" is a song by David Bowie, off his Space Oddity album. It begins with the lines "Oh my love, Janine/I'm helpless for your smile."

Janine is also Claudia Kishi's genius older sister in Ann M. Martin's Babysitters Club series of books.

Janine is a name for someone who is crazy and outgoing. I think it's kinda cute.

It's a trashy name, I hate it.

I have always liked the name Janine. It is a pretty name that isn't used very much.

Elegant and understated, a name that will serve a girl well all her life. (Now I sound like Orddu from THE CHRONICLES OF PRYDAIN. If you haven't read those books, by the way, I highly recommend them.)

I love the name Janine, it's different and very uncommon. Wouldn't change it for anything else.

I love this name and wish I would've gave it to one of my daughters. However, I do not like it spelled Jeannine.

Absolutely foul, no offence but it's true.

My sister is a Janine. Very much so. Pretty, and silly. But wise and outgoing too. We called her J-9 the K-9 to tease her when we were growing up. But I think she rather liked being just plain 'J-9'. It sounded rather "secret agent"ish. Or like a 'robot' name. Otherwise simply pronounced it. Jan/nEE'n. It fits a child. But it grows up very well too.

The name Janine comes for the Hebrew meaning of "A Gift From God".

I think Janine is a good middle name. It is mine after all.. I'm Olivia Janine :) as a first name though I find it dated.

My name is Janine. It is very uncommon, I've met one other Janine in my life and it was a great moment lol. When I was little girl I always thought it didn't sound dainty or girly like other girls names and wished I had a more sweeter sounding name, but as I grew older I have grown to really like it. :-)
