There's a character in the movie "Mean Girls" who's named Janis Ian.

I'm not much of a fan of the name Janice, as I don't like many names ending in the 's' sound, and because the name has a rather harsh sound to it, but I prefer this spelling, as this makes me think of Janis Joplin rather than Janice Dickinson. Of course, the pronunciation isn't any different.

I much prefer the spelling Janice. There's just no reason to spell it Janis. I have found that the vast majority of people who say they don't like the name Janice\Janis cite one of two reasons: It's dated and\or it's the name of the annoying character on "Friends." Neither of which is poor Janice's fault and no reason not to like the name.

I love this name because of the extremely talented musician Janis Ian. "At Seventeen" is one of the most beautiful songs to have ever been written.

The proper Latvian spelling is Jānis. [noted -ed]

I've known a lady ever since I was little whose name is Janis and I always thought it was a fake name. I call her son, whose name is John, Johnis because I thought it was the name Jan with "is" on the end. Recently, I found out that it's the same as the name Janice. It all makes sense now hahaha.

I like Janis a lot better than Janice, I'm not entirely sure why though.

Janis Joplin (American singer, 1943-1970) was known for her powerful blues, soul, rock, and psychedelic sound.
