The English pronunciation of this name is harsh and ugly, and the name sounds rather tacky and borderline trashy in English. I'm a Finn, and I've known a Finnish girl by this name, but the name hasn't exactly caught on over here, while it doesn't sound foreign or weird here either. However, it sounds very youthful. I can't easily imagine a 35-year-old woman named Janna.

My name just happens to be Jana. I LOVE it! I am also 32 years old and still LOVE it! I know maybe 3-4 other women with this name all a couple years older. I also think it flows nice too! Now my middle name yuck!

Janna is the main character in the book Mission Child by Maureen McHugh. She lives on a different planet that has Scandinavian-type culture and names. She later changes her name to Jan to seem more boyish.

I don't like the pronunciations of the name Janna in Dutch or English. The name itself is somewhat uncommon/unique; but the pronunciation in English sounds too much like a whine (ex: "WAHHHH!") and the dutch pronunciation sounds too much like "yawn."
